  • Teacher arrested after students record her snorting powder

A northwest IN teacher is facing drug charges after students reported her to school administrators Wednesday, according to police.

A video shared on social media appears to show the 24-year-old teacher, Samantha Cox, alone in a classroom hunched over a book in her lap while students wait outside. Students also posted videos of the teacher they say show her engaging in suspicious behavior to social media.

The English teacher was allegedly caught doing drugs after students filmed her with a phone from outside the classroom, according to Fox 32 Chicago. "It's just atrocious", said Kasia Firlej, a parent of a child at the school.

She was led out of the school in handcuffs, WGN reported.

Dyer Police Chief Dave Hein confirmed St. John police requested assistance from Dyer on Wednesday for their police K-9 that specializes in narcotics. Cox is being held on charges of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia, according to St. John police.

One of the videos appears to show a woman - later identified as Cox - being escorted out of the building by police.

Police in St. John responded to a call late Wednesday morning about the situation.

St. John police praised the students who told the principal about their suspicions.

In a robocall to parents, Lake Central Superintendent Larry Veracco said police and school staff took "swift and forceful action".

"[Safety] remains the top priority of our school staff", he said.
