Just say no didn’t work for a Virginia elementary school teacher. According to Complex, on Wednesday, cocaine was found in a school teacher’s desk.
Cybil Billie, a 46-year-old kindergarten teacher at Lakeview Elementary School, was arrested and charged with felony possession of cocaine, Division Superintendent William D. Sroufe stated.
“The safety of our students is a top priority, and we will continue to follow School Board policies and procedures throughout this process,” Superintendent Sroufe said in the letter. “Families with any concerns or who may need additional support during this time may contact Lakeview Elementary School.”
Officials say that on April 21, the Colonial Heights School Resource Officer was contacted by a school administrator about a possible drug offense.
The SRO located Billie and what they believed was cocaine inside her desk. At the time of her arrest, students were at recess.
“She was an excellent teacher,” a parent told NBC12. “My daughter did really well in her class. I used to meet with her. Everything was fine when we met. My daughter always enjoyed being in her class.”
Billie worked as a teacher for seven years. She remained in custody at Riverside Regional Jail and awaits her next court appearance.
