Assistant principal resigns, charged with meth possession

HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) - Police in Ohio say they found meth inside the office of a former elementary school assistant principal who is now charged with possession.

Hamilton police say the man turned himself in on Friday. A Hamilton City Schools spokesman says the man has resigned, and the school board has withdrawn an offer for him to work as a summer school principal.

Police said they began investigating the former assistant principal after a vehicle he had rented was used in connection to a burglary on April 26. Authorities say he had no knowledge or involvement in the burglary, but investigators later concluded he had a connection to illegal drugs.

Police say a powdery substance found in the man's office was identified as methamphetamine.

The suspect is due in court Wednesday.
