    A Philadelphia public school teacher is facing theft charges after police say she stole 42 laptops from her school and sold them to a pawn shop.

    Police arrested 35-year-old Kathleen Kremis and her ex-husband, 37-year-old Thomas Perry, early Tuesday morning. Authorities say the fifth-grade teacher would steal the laptops and she and Perry would pawn them for about $100.

    The pawnshop owner told WPVI-TV he became suspicious when Kremis said she was a teacher for a struggling private school.

    Authorities say the pawn shop owner peeled back stickers on the laptops and found Philadelphia School District property labels.

    Kremis and Perry were arraigned and released Tuesday. No phone listing for could be located for either suspect.

    Kremis has been suspended without pay.
