Police: Arizona Kindergarten Teacher Stefanie Courson Charged For Selling Drugs

An Arizona elementary school teacher is facing drugs charges, the Herald-News reports.

Stefanie Courson, 42, was arrested Friday along with Michael Stucker, 43, for the sale of drugs following a month-long undercover operation, according to a press release issued by the Lake Havasu City Police Department.

The operation began after police received a complaint from a concerned citizen that prescription pills were being bought and sold by a local teacher, according to Sgt. Troy Stirling.

Courson was taken into custody after an undercover detective made a final purchase from her. The undercover detective had bought pills from Courson on several occassions, including Morphine, Xanax, Vicodin and Cyclobenzapriane pills.

Police searched both Courson and Stucker’s homes and confiscated additional prescription drugs as well as over $1,400 in cash.

The investigation confirmed that Courson is a kindergarten teacher at Havasupai Elementary School, but there was no evidence that she conducted any of the sales while on school property.

Courson was charged with the sale of dangerous drugs, sale of narcotic drugs, and possession and sale of prescription only drugs. Stucker was charged with the possession and sale of narcotic drugs, possession and sale of dangerous drugs, and sale of prescription only drugs.

Courson and Stucker are being held at the Lake Hacasu City jail pending their initial appearances.
