New Jersey assistant principal charged with drug crime

An assistant principal employed in New Jersey was arrested last week and charged with drug possession on school property. The assistant principal was arrested on the campus where he works and was accused of buying the drugs on school grounds.

He is accused of buying prescription painkillers from a man who does not work at the school, but allegedly sold the drugs to the assistant principal on school property, and he was also arrested on the school grounds on Thursday.

In New Jersey, drug crimes that occur in a school zone include enhanced penalties if convicted of the charges, including significant jail time.

The man who allegedly sold the drugs to the assistant principal is charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and with possession with intent to distribute the controlled dangerous substance on school property. He is also charged with the distribution of the controlled dangerous substance on school property.

The police were reportedly tipped off to the drug buy and contacted local prosecutors. Both men were arrested and may not yet have posted bail. The bail for the assistant principal was set at $10,000. For the alleged drug dealer, the bail was set at $40,000. There were no comments from his employer on the arrest, according to the Courier Post.
