Wells Teacher Arrest Investigation Continues

The Elko County Sheriff’s Office and FBI served search warrants and seized computer records and other materials connected to an alleged teacher sex abuse case that has rocked the community of Wells. Elko County Undersheriff Ron Supp said the FBI has been assisting in the investigation that began last October with allegations that elementary school teacher Tennille Whitaker was accused of at least two sexual relationships with teenage boys from the community. Elko County School Superintendent Jeff Zander confirmed records were taken by the two agencies from offices in Elko and Wells on August 2. Undersheriff Supp said the Elko County School District has been cooperating in the investigation. Whittaker has been released from jail on bond and has been on leave from school duties as the investigation continues.
