A third grade teacher in Florida was arrested on Wednesday after she allegedly sold Xanax and acid to an undercover police officer.

Cheryl Heineman, 45, is charged with multiple counts of sale and delivery of Schedule IV narcotics, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Her alleged partner, 20-year-old Jack Lindsey, was also arrested in the case.

Police say they tracked the Central Avenue Elementary School teacher as part of a lengthy narcotics investigation, buying drugs from her on at least three earlier occasions before the arrest this week in Kissimmee.

Police recorded each of the drug deals, which typically took place in the parking lot of a shopping center, WKMG reports.

School officials said that Heineman, who has worked in the school district for 25 years, has been re-assigned to responsibilities without student contact, pending the investigation, according to WFTV.
