Share

A Sapulpa elementary teacher was arrested Monday and taken to the Creek County Jail after officers with the Sapulpa Police Department allegedly found heroin-filled syringes inside the 27-year-old teacher's, Megan Nicole Sloan, purse, according to Fox 23. Sloan openly admitted to the drug use when police questioned her.

According to an arrest affidavit, Sloan left her Facebook account open on another teacher's computer.

She also admitted to stealing $125 worth of "field trip money" to pay for gas and drugs as well as pawning two school iPads.

The arrest and resulting mugshot showed Sloan has undergone a dramatic physical transformation since pictures posted last summer of her Facebook page. A National Institute of Health survey found that 86 percent of heroin users used prescription pain medicine non-medically prior to trying heroin.

Also in the purse, according to court records: multiple small empty plastic baggies, multiple small broken and empty balloons commonly used to store narcotics, and two bent metal spoons.

If Sloan did in fact progress from painkillers to heroin, she would hardly be alone.

KTUL interviewed Adam Hiett, who was Sloan's college classmate about four years ago, when they were both pursuing their dream of becoming teachers.

Authorities say they do not believe students were exposed to drugs. School administrators responded to the whistleblower, saying they would look into the matter. When that teacher opened Facebook, she saw messages between Sloan and other individuals discussing using and selling heroin, per NewsOn6. She has also been suspended from her teaching position. KOTV reports that the charges against her are likely to include three counts of possessing or purchasing controlled drugs within 1,000 feet of a school or in the presence of a child under 12, possession of drug paraphernalia, and embezzlement. Police officials have the teacher's phone, and they are planning to search it for evidence.
