Fallsburg police investigating the reported discovery of heroin and drug paraphernalia in a faculty bathroom at Benjamin Cosor Elementary School say the refusal by a group of teachers to cooperate is hampering their probe.
No one has been charged, but six teachers and an aide were identified as having used the men’s room before a school staff member reportedly found a heroin baggie on Feb. 11.
Just before the winter break in December, heroin and needles were reportedly found in the same bathroom.
Each of the seven faculty members initially agreed to give urine samples, but then rescinded their cooperation and hired lawyers on the advice of the school district’s union, Fallsburg police Chief Simmie Williams said.
For the children!
