    Police say Megan Sloan, 27, admitted bringing drugs and drug paraphernalia into Holmes Park Elementary School in Sapulpa, Oklahoma on Monday, according to KTUL-TV.

    Sloan allegedly had 13 syringes with heroin in some, methamphetamine and spoons to cook drugs, KJRH-TV reported. 

    She also admitted to stealing $125 worth of “field trip money” to pay for gas and drugs as well as pawning two school iPads, according to KJRH-TV. 

    Another teacher reported Sloan after seeing a conversation in Sloan’s open Facebook page about “using and selling heroin and pawning school property,” KTUL reported. 

    Sloan, who has been a teacher for two years, is charged with drug-related counts and one count of embezzlement.
