School under fire for theft investigation

Posted:
ATLANTIC (KWWL) -- A western Iowa school is under fire for how it handled a theft investigation.

Five girls from Atlantic high school say they were forced to remove their clothes after a classmate reported 100 dollars missing from her purse.

Conducting a strip-search is not legal in Iowa schools, but Atlantic high school officials say the search was "allowable" under board rules.

The money wasn't found.
