Five people are charged with theft of more than 870,000 from Chicago Public School System. All are charged with felony theft of government property. The charges are the result of a joint investigation of the Chicago Public Schools inspector general and Cook County state’s attorney’s office. Although the Inspector General is not commenting until after the bond hearing, officials say:
Charges have been expected in this case for some time. Three of the men [have been] arrested while the two others are still being sought.
