Megan Sloan, 27, was found and arrested for bringing drugs to her job as an elementary school teacher, including needles and heroin. After the arrest, police also decided to add “child neglect” to her list of charges.
She taught at Holmes Park Elementary School in Sepulpa, and was found on the premises with the drugs in her purse. She was arrested after another teacher spotted some evidence on Sloan’s Facebook. Sloan forgot to log off, and the other teacher noticed a conversation Sloan was having where she admitted to pawning school items and selling heroin.
Police found 13 needles, meth, and heroin in the young teacher’s purse.
The Daily Mail reports:
She now faces five charges, including drug possession in the presence of a minor, child neglect, two counts of embezzlement and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police said at the time of her arrest that Sloan admitted to using drugs before the drugs were allegedly found in her purse.
While talking to police in the principal’s office, Sloan admitted to possessing Xanax, pawning two tablet computers belonging to the school and stealing $125 in student field trip money.
They believe that Sloan used the money to buy gas and drugs.
Police then searched her purse and found 13 syringes inside – one of which had a brown substance in it that turned out to he heroin.
Police noted that Sloan did not appear high when they spoke to her.
Sloan said she did not take drugs at school and never left her purse within reach of students.
The school said they were cooperating with police and that student safety is their number one priority.
Sloan had been a teacher at the school for the last two years. She has no criminal history.
She is due to face court again on May 24.
