SCOTTSBURG, Ind. (AP) - State police say a southern Indiana elementary teacher was arrested at school on drug charges and she had drugs with her when taken into custody.

Forty-seven-year-old Laura Nowling was arrested Thursday and charged with possession of meth, possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of marijuana.

Nowling was being held Sunday in the Scott County Jail on $10,000 bond. A message seeking comment was left Sunday by The Associated Press at the office of her attorney. A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf at a hearing Friday.

The school district told The (Louisville, Kentucky) Courier-Journal (https://cjky.it/1TfJCZV ) Nowling has been an employee for more than a decade.

State police Sgt. Jerry Goodin says no students were present when Nowling was arrested.
