Comments Off on Detectives say elementary school teacher brought and used meth at work every day for 7 years

Investigators arrested a third grade teacher in Springtown who they believe brought drugs to school and got high every morning for seven years.

Vicki Bruce has taught at Reno Elementary School in Springtown, about 30 miles west of Fort Worth, for about 10 years, according to a report from Fox KDFW-TV. She was arrested Wednesday and released on bond.



According to an arrest warrant first obtained by KDFW, the 46-year-old teacher told Texas Rangers that she used methamphetamines before going to work “on-and-off” for the last seven years. She told investigators that she had been buying $60 worth of meth every week for the last seven years.

Bruce told Texas Rangers that she didn’t have the drugs in the school, but that she had then in her car in the parking lot.

Investigators say Bruce kept the drugs wrapped in aluminum foil in a photo album in her purse.

Wise County Sheriff David Walker said that as of now, the teacher will be charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone.

Bruce was arrested and booked into the Wise County Jail on Wednesday. She was released on a $25,000 bond.
