CLARKSBURG, W. Va. — A special education teacher at South Harrison High School has been arrested on felony drug charges.

Kimberly Jo Pratt, 32, of Fairmont was apprehended by the Harrison County Street Crimes and Drug Unit on Wednesday and is charged with possession of Hydrocodone pills with intent to distribute.

Her arrest comes after an undercover operation conducted by the SCAD Unit, in which Pratt, while working on school property, made arraignments to purchase the drugs. Pratt agreed to meet an undercover officer posing as a drug dealer at a convenience store off the Saltwell exit on I-79 at 8 p.m. and purchased 45 pills.

As soon as Pratt took possession of the pills she was arrested without incident and transported to the North Central Regional Jail.

On Thursday, Pratt was arraigned by Harrison County Magistrate Frank DeMarco, where she posted a $25,000 bond.

    Teachers are being forced to this end. The hardest working state professionals and we are paid beans.

      Yea right and I am going to be forced into robbing a bank, you know I'm a little short on my house payment. I work so hard, it's not fair. Now don't I sound stupid with that staement, just like your statement.

      No Myron, teachers are not forced into drug dealing. They are just making stupid choices.

      Maybe you should consider learning how to properly use punctuation before criticizing people.

    And people get upset that I have been saying be damned the teacher unions...........time for drug testing of teachers.

      As a teacher, I will give a specimen in any container you choose and you can pluck a hair from any part of my body. Can I get in line behind the welfare recipients?

      • Mandatory Drug Testing

        Sure. Both groups should be subjected to mandatory testing. Thanks for volunteering. BTW, I have no doubt that if independent and random drug testing of teachers, welfare recipients and politicians would result in a minimum of 25% testing positive for drugs.

          37% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
