CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — An eastern Iowa teacher is facing charges after he is accused of stealing medications from multiple students.

Doug Wilkinson was arrested earlier this month in connection to missing prescription drugs at Holmes Junior High School. Wilkinson is an English teacher at Cedar Falls High School and a coach at Holmes.

He’s accused of stealing student medication from at least five different students, including Adderall. Court records say security video shows him taking pills from the nurse’s cabinet.

The school district did not comment on the case, calling it a confidential personnel matter.
