27-year-old Megan Sloan

SAPULPA, Okla. – Sapulpa police say a second grade teacher is under arrest after bringing heroin to school and stealing money to buy drugs.

Megan Sloan, 27, has been charged with three counts of possession or purchasing controlled drugs within 1000 feet of public institution, embezzlement, and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sapulpa police say the school called them after Sloan left her social media account open on another teacher’s computer on Monday.

The teacher told police she found a conversation in which Sloan was talking about using and selling heroin, as well as pawning school items.

When officers searched Sloan's purse, they found heroin, methamphetamine, spoons to cook drugs and a drug used to treat opioid addiction.

She is also suspected of selling school iPads and using student field trip money to buy drugs, according to police.

She is currently booked into the Creek County Jail.

Sapulpa Public Schools superintendent Rob Armstrong shared the following statement with parents, according to KOKI-TV:

Let me take a moment to express my heartfelt sadness for the events that have transpired this week.  We are working tirelessly to investigate several serious allegations.  While talking with many individuals, and small groups of people during the last 72 hours we wanted to take the time to send a general message to our entire community.  Oklahoma Statutes prohibit a public body from releasing and/or discussing internal personnel investigations, including demotion, discipline, or resignations.  

We take the safety of our children very serious.  We are all parents, grandparents, and neighbors.  As a matter of standard practice, we will review our current policies and procedures to ensure best available practices are being followed.  

Please contact your school principal, or district administrators if you ever have information that we need to know about.  Together we will continue to make this a school district to be proud of.
