HOUSTON (AP) -

A school principal in Houston has been accused of shoplifting about $350 worth of Christmas ornaments and men's clothing from a department store.
    
The Houston Independent School District on Tuesday said Tammie Daily has been temporarily reassigned amid the investigation.
    
The principal at Shadydale Elementary School was arrested Sunday on a misdemeanor theft charge. An attorney for Daily says the 52-year-old woman put the ornaments in a shopping bag to protect the items and then forgot to pay.
    
Daily, who makes nearly $112,000 annually, also allegedly did not pay for some cologne, a man's shirt and two ties. She paid for the items after being stopped by store personnel, but was then arrested, charged and later released.
