Middle School Teacher Charged With Having Pot In His Pants

A middle school teacher is in jail after his arrest for possessing marijuana.

It happened in Halifax County when deputies say they stopped a vehicle for erratic driving.

When the deputy was explaining the warning ticket he gave, the man made several erratic movements. That led to the deputy checking the driver for weapons and that's when he found a sock in the man's pants containing pot, several empty bags and an empty lens case.

26-year-old Dexter Wade of Enfield was arrested for possession with the intent to sell or deliver the marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances.

The sheriff's department says Wade is a substitute teacher at Enfield Middle School. No word whether the school district has taken any action against the teacher.
