A 45-year-old lunch lady was arrested in Louisiana for allegedly selling weed edibles to high school kids.
On January 20, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office released a statement on Facebook detailing the incident with the substitute cafeteria woman, Tymetrica Cohn.
The post read, “Earlier this week, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip that a student purchased “edible marijuana” from a school employee. TPSO Narcotics agents began investigating the complaint and soon identified Cohn as the suspect.”
It continued, “While Cohn was not an employee of the Tangipahoa Parish School System, she was working as a substitute cafeteria worker at Sumner High School at the time of her arrest. According to Superintendent Melissa Stilley, Cohn was employed by ESS, a staffing service used to place substitute employees in schools.”
The post detailed Cohn’s arrest and charge details stating, “Cohn was arrested and charged with:
(1) count – Possession/Distribution of CDS I
(1) count – Distribution of a CDS in a Drug-Free Zone.”
