An ex-actor who co-starred in a Jack Black movie when he was a teenager was recently accused of four incidents where musical instruments were taken from stores and pawned for cash.

At the end of January, a North Florida music store called in to report the theft of an $800 Les Paul electric guitar and issued a description of the suspect and the serial number of the instrument to the authorities.

In February, the police department was furnished information from the County Sheriff’s Office informing them that about 90 minutes after the alleged theft a pawn shop had purchased a guitar with the same serial number as the Les Paul that was reported stolen.

An elementary school special education teacher has been accused of stealing iPads that belong to the school district and reselling them for profit. Her boyfriend is also a suspect in the purported activity.

42-year-old Amanda Mirkovich has been employed with the Clark County School District in Las Vegas since 2013. For the past three years, she has been on an assignment as a special needs teacher at Tate Elementary School.

During the course of an investigation, authorities were sorting through the transaction records from the local pawn shops on April 3 when they discovered three iPads that raised their suspicions. Upon further inspection, they learned that the electronics had black stickers placed on the underside that seemed unusual. When the stickers were removed an engraving saying “Property of the Clark County School District” was revealed beneath the concealing label.
