A third-grade teacher from North Carolina was arrested after a meth lab was found inside of her home. Police discovered meth-making equipment during a search warrant at the residence of Lori Riley Whitley and her husband, Gary. The couple will face a combined total of a dozen charges, including manufacturing methamphetamine, maintaining a vehicle or dwelling for a controlled substance and child abuse. They have an 8-year-old son who has since been placed in custody of the Department of Social Services.


Lori Whitley has worked as a third-grade teacher at Wendell Elementary School since 2002. According to NY Daily News, she has been suspended with pay. Bernard Brodie, a neighbor of the couple, said he didn’t know there was a meth lab being operated next door, but did notice a strong chemical odor coming from the house. She is a “good lady,” Brodie also said of Whitley.

Hey I’ll be the first to testify that teachers make crap wages, but for fucks sake sell shit on etsy to make extra cash. Don’t create a meth lab that endangers your child’s health and well being.
