TEUTOPOLIS ARREST

Authorities in Teutopolis arrested a man in the high school parking lot Wednesday after being alerted by school district officials of an inappropriate social media contact between a student at the school and an adult male. Superintendent Deborah Philpot issued a statement indicating that a potentially serious situation was avoided due to several students at the school stepping forward with information. She added the male adult was not a district employee and does not live in the Teutopolis area and was taken without incident. She also says that with a criminal investigation ongoing, there would be no further comment from the district.
