WEST MEMPHIS, Ark. (AP) - Authorities in West Memphis have arrested an elementary school teacher, charging her with carrying methamphetamine to school. Police say the woman also had a working meth lab at her home.
Police arrested 36-year-old Kellie Stewart Beasley as she returned to Faulk Elementary around lunchtime. Police say she had meth in her pocket and two men inside a shed at her home making the illegal substance.
Police say it does not appear Beasley distributed the drug at school.
Beasley was charged yesterday with possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing and possession of drug paraphernalia. Names of the two men who were arrested were not released. Beasley resigned from her job.
