PEMBROKE, N.H. (AP) - Police say a former dean of students charged with bringing heroin into a New Hampshire high school was the one who initiated the February search that resulted in her arrest.

Chief Dwayne Gilman tells The Concord Monitor (https://bit.ly/23amzoO ) that 36-year-old Rekha Luther falsely reported to co-workers at Pembroke Academy that she found a bundle of hypodermic needles and then lost track of them on February 17.

Headmaster Paul Famulari called police to the Suncook village school, where Gilman says it was later determined that there never were any missing needles.

Police say Luther was then found to be in possession of heroin at the school and had illegal steroids in her car.

Luther was charged with four felony counts of possessing a controlled drug. She didn’t return requests for comment.
