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.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
