Heroin found at pri­mary school

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PRI­MARY school teacher was ar­rested for pos­sess­ing heroin af­ter it was found in her hand­bag in her class­room.

Clau­dia Reaney, 49, who taught eight and nine-year-olds had drug para­pher­na­lia in her bag as well as drugs in her car.

Po­lice were tipped off that some­one at the school in Syra­cuse, New York, may have been in pos­ses­sion of drugs.

Of­fi­cers searched her class­room and a po­lice snif­fer dog led them straight to her hand­bag.

The po­lice report states they found “sev­eral foils and straws” that tested pos­i­tive for heroin, and in her car they found the out­lawed drug.

Po­lice of­fi­cer Tracy Jensen said: “She used at least four to five times a day, for a cou­ple of months at least. It has been a huge shock to the com­mu­nity.”

Reaney was ar­rested for pos­ses­sion of a con­trolled sub­stance and has been warned her penalty could be tougher be­cause the drugs were on school prop­erty.
