COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A northern Kentucky teacher has been charged with having a shipment of cocaine sent to Holmes Middle School in Covington.
Arin Staples resigned Aug. 15 after being questioned by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
A Kenton County Grand Jury indicted Staples on a felony drug charge Thursday.
Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://cin.ci/1pcq6bL ) that Staples also purchased cocaine from a dealer on school property.
Covington Independent Public School District Superintendent Alvin Garrison says the district is reviewing its policies.
Garrison says DEA agents visited the middle school twice since classes started Aug. 13 and interviewed three employees.
Sanders says all of those employees have resigned or been suspended.
Staples is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 8. Court records did not list an attorney for Staples.
