IN teacher caught allegedly using cocaine in classroom

Samantha Cox was arrested after students showed the video to the principal

Let's all talk about Samantha Cox, the 24-year-old high school English teacher, who was recently marched out of Lake Central High School in St. John, in handcuffs for one reason and one reason alone: she was filmed snorting cocaine in her classroom.

Students recorded Cox on social media app Snapchat.

Cox later admitted buying $160 worth of cocaine before starting her shift at school that morning. She was arrested Wednesday on charges of possessing a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. Police brought in a search dog which found more cocaine in the drawer of Cox's desk.

Cox told police she has been using drugs since her freshman year of college about four years ago, the paper said.

It is not clear how long she had been working at the school when the video was filmed last week.

A police statement said information of Cox's behaviour was brought to their attention by school administrators after "student witnesses" informed them.

An Indiana teacher filmed snorting what appeared to be cocaine inside her classroom told detectives that she was sick and needed the drug.

When police searched her vehicle they found a glass pipe, empty pieces of tin foil, opened plastic baggies and two more rolled paper straws.

A hunt of her auto turned up purge thwart pieces, a glass pipe, plastic baggies that had been torn open and two improvised straws.

Court records do not show if an initial court date has been set for Cox, but records show she posted a $945 bond.

In the YouTube video, you can see Cox hunched over in the corner of the classroom creating lines of something on a book.

The Lake County prosecutor's office has filed charges against a Lake Central English teacher accused last week of using drugs in her classroom. "It's a sad situation". But we are also concerned about her welfare, too.

Students said it appeared Cox was making lines of cocaine. "She seemed to be a very good teacher".
