Two Florida Teachers Charged With Drug Possession

DUNDEE, FLORIDA – Polk County Sheriff’s detectives arrested two Donald E. Woods Alternative School teachers today for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

During a routine search for drugs at the Dundee school, Sheriff’s Office School Resource detectives found marijuana in a student’s jacket. Upon further investigation, a confidential source tipped off detectives about the two teachers, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.

One teacher, Bradley Michael Goldsmith, 25, of 5606 Loma Vista Court, in Davenport, admitted to socially smoking marijuana at his home. The other suspects, who live in the same residence, are Jessica Allison Murray, 26, who is also a Donald E. Woods teacher, and her boyfriend, Jason West, 26. They also admitted to smoking marijuana at the home, the Sheriff’s Office said.

When the detectives searched the home, they found one large bong, five glass pipes, one cannabis grinder, and marijuana.

Goldsmith, Murray and West were arrested and transported to the Polk County Jail, each facing charges of possession of cannabis, possession of drug paraphernalia, and maintaining a dwelling for drug use.

    All the teachers had to do was DENY! DENY! DENY! Who in their right mind would admit smoking weed to a cop without substantial evidence??? They are idiots and deserve to get punished…Stupid!!!

    i actually live in the town next to dundee, and with all the violence and meth production going on in this county this is fucking ridiculous. the police department of a close-by city in our county has been corrupt for years and some light is finally getting shed on it. this is madness.

    What’s better is that the CI was clearly a juvenile who tried to lessen the severity of his punishment by ratting out his teachers, probably without having actually witnessed anything. The overuse of CIs is one of the most destructive elements of the drug prohibition.

    This was a reprehensible act that truly causes me to feel intense shame for my fellow citizens and my country.
    That our government agents can consistently be allowed to inflict such inhumanity and brutality against our fellow citizens, truly creates a pause for concern.
    Who are these people that we have allowed to be charged with protecting us and our society?
    Why are our police forces allowed to become more powerful than those who were intended to watch-over and govern them???

    I guess the answer’s just ‘Blowin in the Wind’.
