Teacher arrested on drug charges

She was supposed to begin the new school year Tuesday, but instead a high school teacher is in jail.

Police arrested 41-year-old Susan Charron at her Georgetown home overnight.

Police say they found pills after executing a search warrant at the home on Seth Way, off Lemons Mill Road.

Charron is now charged with first degree possession of a controlled substance, which stems from an investigation that started back in April.

That's when Kentucky State Police received a complaint that Charron was allegedly selling prescription pills to a student.

Charron is a special needs teacher at Scott County High School. She's been on suspension with pay since April, pending the result of the investigation.

"The childrens' well being and safety is our concern and the school system has done everything in its power to ensure that our students are safe," Scott County Superintendent Patricia Putty said. "The immediate action taken as soon as the complaint was filed is indicative of our sincerity of their safety and well being."

Police say detectives have looked into the allegations and confiscated Charron's prescription medication.

The investigation so far was taken to the grand jury, where Charron was indicted on the charge of possession of a controlled substance.

We're told the investigation is still ongoing. There's no word yet if more charges will be filed in the case.

27 NEWSFIRST contacted Charron at the Scott County Detention Center. She declined to comment on the case.
