A teacher in Virginia was arrested at her place of employment after cocaine substance was discovered in her desk.
Cybil Billie, 46, was taken in by a Colonial Heights Elementary School Resource Officer after he was informed of a possible drug offense on April 21.
Billie, a Chesterfield resident, was charged with possession of cocaine.
“During the course of the investigation, the SRO located contraband that is believed to be cocaine, inside of the teacher’s desk,” police said.
Some parents are concerned by the arrest, particularly those who had children under her care.
“She was actually my daughter’s teacher,” Mark Klingman said. His daughter attends Lakeview Elementary. “I don’t know what to make of it…I thought it was a joke of some kind.”
According to NBC12, the school notified parents about the arrest, providing the following statement:
“The safety of our students is a top priority and we will continue to follow School Board policies and procedures throughout this process. Families with any concerns or who may need additional support during this time may contact Lakeview Elementary School. Families of students in Ms. Billie’s class will receive additional communication from Dr. Patrick Neuman, regarding the assignment of a new teacher in the near future.”
Billie is being held at Riverside Regional Jail without bond.
