A Texas elementary school principal has been arrested for allegedly bringing cocaine to campus, according to reports Wednesday.
Jessica Sanchez is charged with possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone, KTRK-TV first reported. She was arrested after an employee found the drugs in a restroom at Travis Elementary in Baytown, Texas.
“We will not, under any circumstances, tolerate this type of behavior in our schools. Our campuses are a safe haven for students, and we will not have students in unsafe environments,” the Goose Creek Consolidated ISD said in a statement.
Court records cited by the outlet say Sanchez has posted a $5,000 and was expected to be released.
