Tennessee teacher arrested on drug charges

CANNON COUNTY, Tenn. (WTVF) – A Cannon County High School teacher has been arrested for allegedly illegally purchasing and distributing prescription drugs.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation charged Shannon Gannon with Conspiracy to Deliver Schedule II Prescription Narcotics. He was arrested Thursday night without incident.

TBI Special Agents along with investigators with the Cannon County Sheriff’s Office began investigating Gannon over the past few weeks.

They developed information that the 41-year-old was buying and distributing prescription narcotics. The TBI investigation remains open as they work to determine whether any of the sales happened at the school or involved students.

He was held in the Cannon County Jail on $5,000 bond.
