A Hillsborough County teacher is accused of stealing another teacher's wallet while kids were playing at recess.

Earlier this month at about 3:00 the two teachers were sitting at the same table outside Hammond Elementary School watching students participate in recess.

The victim put her purse and lunchbox on the table to help a student, at which point deputies say another teacher, Sylvia Clark, took her wallet with contents valued at more than $340.

A few hours later, the credit card was used at a Publix on Dale Mabry Hwy.

Clark was captured on video surveillance and was identified by the victim as the person using the card.

She was charged with Grand Theft and Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card.
