HAMILTON, Ohio — 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 Kevin Kernohan turned himself in on Friday. A Hamilton City Schools spokesman said Kernohan resigned, and the school board has withdrawn an offer for him to work as a summer school principal.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 Kernohan’s office was identified as methamphetamine.
Kernohan is due in court Wednesday.
