Crossing guard busted for giving narcotics to students

PENNSYLVANIA, PA – A school crossing guard in Pennsylvania was apprehended this Tuesday for allegedly distributing narcotics to middle school students. Kiara Lee, 26, apparently gave out electronic cigarettes and marijuana-laced substances to pupils at Penn Wood Middle School.

The authorities were alerted to the situation by a student who disclosed that Lee supplied students with vapes on multiple occasions and reportedly smoked marijuana with another student. Parental confirmation backed the student’s account, with one caregiver asserting that Lee had distributed marijuana edibles and vaping devices to her child.

Authorities related that text messages between Lee and the student detailed their experiences after consuming the edibles. The baffling behavior exhibited by Lee is a grave breach of trust, as remarked by Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer. School crossing guards are given the responsibility of children’s lives and represent public servants in the truest sense. Any individual compromising this trust poses a significant threat to the wellbeing of the community.

The news has understandably stirred concerns among parents at Penn Wood Middle School. Expressing her shock, parent Maya Bryant states, “It’s already bad enough as a parent, keeping them away from influences.” Malekka Dade, another parent, described the situation as utterly disgusting.

According to official jail records, Lee was charged with two counts each of corruption of minors and possessing marijuana, among others. Set at $20,000, she could not post her bail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for June 14.
