Nobody expected the Chestatee Academy middle school Spanish teacher and girls soccer coach to be holding mass quantities of narcotics in her Gainesville, Georgia apartment. Which is probably why she was picked for the assignment. Though her teacher page at Chestatee is pretty sparse, she can’t possibly have that much free time. You’d have to think the mastermind behind the shipment of a boatload of cocaine and heroin into the Southeast remains at large.
Police got a tip that a home in Oakwood, Georgia about an hour northeast of Atlanta was loaded to the hilt with narcotics. They busted into the place where they found the girls soccer coach, Karla Alvarez, Monica Pascual Brito, 61 kilograms of cocaine, 1 kilogram of heroin, and 2 semi-automatic rifles. Add that up and you have a six million dollar drug bust that is being talked about up and down the Atlantic Coast. That’s good for the police involved. Quite bad for Alvarez and Brito, also Brito’s brother who lived in the home and is currently on the lam. Expect all involved to be charge with kingpin level crimes, including gun charges. Cops also found anabolic steroids, for good measure. Invest in postcards if you happen to be family members of these two ladies.
The school superintendent overseeing the Chestatee seemed to take the arrest of Alvarez in stride, almost too good of stride:
“Over my 17 years as a superintendent, I have had many employees arrested. We always try to give accurate and relevant information as quickly as possible. These situations are difficult, and people need an opportunity to express themselves and ask questions. We try to create that environment.”
Like how many school employees is many? You might want to talk to your public relations firm and slightly revise that opener. Either way it’s good to know you’re ready to field questions. Question one: is the chemistry teacher named Heisenburg?
