Florida schoolteacher sold 'large amounts' of marijuana from her home: report – Orlando Sentinel
A 55-year-old Florida elementary-school teacher was charged with possessing and selling marijuana after undercover officers purchased “large amounts” of the drug from her, the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.
Kimberly Hellenburg of Inverness is a teacher at Pleasant Grove Elementary School.
“During the execution of a search warrant, detectives located over 2 pounds of marijuana in the home, distribution equipment, and at least ½ pound of marijuana in Hellenburg’s bedroom,” the sheriff’s office said.
The Citrus County School District told ABC Action News that Hellenburg was employed with the district for the past 29 years and worked as a physical education teacher. A school district spokesperson told the TV station that the superintendent would likely recommend suspending Hellenburg without pay during the investigation.
Hellenburg’s son, Brendan Brown, 19, was arrested at the same home on December 28, deputies said.
