— A female teacher at North Johnston Middle School has resigned amid an investigation into allegations of "inappropriate contact" with male high school students, authorities said Monday.

The teacher's name hasn't been released because she hasn't been charged with a crime, said Tammy Amaon, spokeswoman for the Johnston County Sheriff's Office.

No information was released as to the number of students involved or whether the alleged misconduct occurred on school property.
