CUMBERLAND COUNTY, Tenn. — A part-time teacher in Cumberland County is facing drug charges after authorities said a K-9 found drugs inside her car at Pineville Elementary School.
According to a release from the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, a K-9 dog alerted its handler to a car in the Pineville Elementary School parking lot Thursday morning. The dog and handler were with Interquest Detection Canines, which CCSO said the Board of Education used for several years to detect both drugs and guns.
CCSO said the car belonged to Angela Elizabeth Anderson, 31, from Cookeville, and she was arrested on drug charges after authorities searched it and said they found drugs. The sheriff’s office also said she was suspended without pay.
She was charged with having marijuana as well as the manufacture, delivery or sale of cocaine. She was taken to the Cumberland County Jail and is being held on a $7,000 bond pending a Jan. 8 court date.
