Pennsylvania School Principal Charged With Dealing Drugs From His Office

Bethlehem, Pa. (AP) -- A middle school principal is under arrest on charges of dealing drugs out of his office.

Police in Allentown, Pennsylvania, say they found methamphetamine on John Acerra's desk when they went to arrest him. An investigation began earlier this month, when an informant told cops the principal was both using and selling meth.

According to court documents, police watched last week as Acerra sold a small amount of the drug to a customer in a store parking lot. They then arranged for an informant to make two more purchases, one of which police say occurred in the principal's office.
