(Gardner, Massachusetts) A 32-year-old English teacher at Leominster High School, Stephanie A. Laslocky, has been accused of drug possession. She was arrested last Friday.
Laslocky faces charges of possession of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.
Gardner Lt. John A. Bernard said cocaine and a small amount of marijuana were found during the search of Ms. Laslocky's home.Laslocky was booked and released on $40 bail.
Lt. Bernard said Ms. Laslocky told police she had been dealing for about five years. Police began investigating her after neighbors called complaining of traffic in the neighborhood.
“She never would have come on our radar screen otherwise,” he said.
Although Ms. Laslocky is a teacher in Leominster, Lt. Bernard said there is no evidence she was dealing to students or her drug activity involved the school in any way.
