Teacher charged with drug possession


May 04, 2007

A William H. Lemmel Middle School teacher was arrested yesterday and charged with possession of methadone that she is suspected of buying on her way to work, Baltimore police said.

About 7:15 a.m., undercover officers observed a man selling what turned out to be a 2-ounce bottle of methadone to a woman in the 2000 block of N. Charles St., said Detective David Jones of the Central District's drug enforcement unit.

The officers arrested the dealer, and the woman was arrested by uniformed officers who stopped her car about two miles away in the 2500 block of W. North Ave. and seized the methadone, Jones said.

Myron Brooks, 37, of the 2600 block Madison Ave. was charged with multiple drug offenses. Danielle Talbot, 36, of the first block of Maple Ave. in Catonsville was charged with simple possession of methadone, police said.

Seized from Brooks were nearly $200, seven bottles of methadone and the drugs clonazepam and clonidine, which addicts mix with methadone to produce an effect similar to that of heroin, Jones said.
