Antonisha Chambers, 34, a first-grade teacher was arrested at her home in Fayetteville, North Carolina, this past Friday, along with Bradford Gordon, on drug trafficking charges. Detectives seized “over 4 pounds of methamphetamine during this investigation”, the Fayetteville Police Department said in a statement on Saturday. As well as possessing methamphetamine, the pair were accused of transporting the drug, more commonly known as crystal meth, from the property.

Ms. Chambers is a first-grade teacher at Honeycutt Elementary School in Fayetteville. Lindsay Whitley, an associate superintendent for Cumberland County Schools and spokesman for the Honeycutt school, told The Fayetteville Observer on Sunday that the school was aware of the arrest. “The arrest did not take place on the school campus and students were not made aware of this situation,” Ms. Whitley said. Ms. Whitley added “that Honeycutt Elementary and the school district in Fayetteville took the arrest “very seriously”.

Ms. Whitley declaimed that: “[W]hile these allegations are very disappointing, they do not overshadow the work that our employees do on a daily basis to help students succeed in the classroom and beyond. Prior to hiring employees, the district conducts extensive background checks and provides ethics training to employees once hired.” Police said both Ms. Chambers and Mr. Gordon were working in the US on visas. The Observer reported that she was hired by the Cumberland County School system in August 2021.

    Make sure they both pay all penalties and charges immediately then put them back on their way to where they came from.

‘Mass poisoning:’ Officials seize 15,000 fentanyl pills disguised as candy

“It’s a mass poisoning.” That’s what Derek Maltz, former DEA special operations director, is calling the fentanyl crisis. In an interview on Fox News, Maltz calls on parents to educate themselves, as the deadly drug is being disguised as candy.

Two Maryland men were charged with trafficking thousands of fentanyl pills that looked like popular candy into Connecticut, the Justice Department said Friday.

With Halloween just weeks away, Maltz wants parents to be warned that the deadly rainbow-colored pills may be marketed to children. During the recent seizure in Connecticut, officials seized 15,000 pills disguised as candy.  The drugs were stashed in Skittles and Nerds packaging, officials said.

“We’re seeing an unprecedented amount of kids dying as young as 13 years old,” Maltz said on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

“And we know now, the DEA says, that 40% of the pills contain a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl.”

Maltz confirmed cartels are taking advantage of teens’ obsession with the internet by selling the drugs on social media platforms. Maltz added that the children being targeted in these sales may not know any better.
