Western N.D. teacher charged for marijuana
ALEXANDER, N.D.—A school resource officer arrested a teacher at the Alexander Public School this week for allegedly having marijuana and related items in employee housing around her children.
Regie Hill, 32, of Alexander, is held at the McKenzie County Correctional Facility, charged with felony endangerment of a child or vulnerable adult and misdemeanor counts of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
McKenzie County Sheriff's Deputy and SRO Chris Cloud arrested Hill Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 7, at the Alexander Public School after investigating marijuana reportedly seen in her residence during a domestic violence call on Sunday. Hill reportedly denied consent for deputies to search her home then.
Court documents say three deputies returned with a search warrant Tuesday and reportedly found opened and sealed bags of marijuana buds and wax, a half-smoked marijuana cigarette and glass pipes.
The items were reportedly found in a master bedroom and bathroom, some found accessible and exposed to children and near children's items, such as a blanket, pillow and bath products.
Hill reportedly has three children, ages 8, 6 and 8 months, who live in the home.
Alexander Public School superintendent Leslie Bieber said Hill has been a science teacher for the seventh to 12th grades at the school for about four years.
Bieber declined to comment on Hill's employment status since her charging. Cloud's affidavit indicates Hill was working when he arrested her in Bieber's office.
Court records indicate Hill will appear for a bond reduction hearing on Monday before Northwest District Judge Daniel El-Dweek.
