According to WSB-TV, Tymetrica Cohn, a 45-year-old temporary cafeteria worker, was removed from Sumner High School on Friday (January 20) and taken into custody by the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Melissa Stilley said in a statement that school officials received a tip “involving a substitute cafeteria worker allegedly selling a homemade baked good laced with marijuana also known as edibles.”
“The safety of our students is of the utmost importance to our school system,” Stilley said. “I want to commend this student who saw something and used the P3 app to bring this threat to the attention of our school officials and law enforcement."
According to police, Cohn was contracted by a local staffing agency and didn't work directly under the school system. She was charged with one count each of possession/distribution of a controlled dangerous substance and distribution of a controlled dangerous substance in a drug-free zone.
An investigation into the incident remains ongoing, per WSB.
