For those of us who are fans of “Breaking Bad” this could not be more gratifying: a real life East Texas (junior high) science teacher was busted for selling meth. And now the story gets sad: he was busted on school grounds and the meth was not blue.
Police say after several tips, they went undercover and bought meth from Duncan in the Linden-Kildare Junior High parking lot around 8:30 a.m. Monday. The school district has placed Duncan on administrative release for now.
“We’ve been conducting an undercover operation for about five months and buying narcotics and we had bought off of this person a few weeks back,” said Linden Police Chief Alton McWaters. “We set-up another buy from him. He sold it to us at the school, at the junior high school where he teaches.”
Police arrested Duncan Tuesday on his lunch break at school. During the arrest, McWaters says they discovered Duncan had meth in his truck on school property.
