Teacher indicted on heroin charge

A former West Texas teacher has been indicted on a charge of possession of heroin with intent to sell.

Ryan Ashley Glenn, 30, who taught at a high school and coached seventh-graders in the Frenship district southwest of Lubbock, was indicted Monday. He is accused of possessing more than three grams of heroin he allegedly was planning to sell.

A call to his attorney, Chuck Lanehart, was not immediately returned Tuesday.

Glenn was arrested July 31 after an employee at a commercial shipping store called police to say he’d found drugs in a box a man was trying to have sent in the mail.

Glenn, who had worked for the school district for two years, resigned the day after his arrest.

Police have said they found heroin, other drugs and drug paraphernalia at Glenn’s apartment that day.

Five days later, police seized 50 marijuana plants from a home owned by Glenn, police have said. Glenn was renovating the home at the time and wasn’t living there.

Glenn posted $27,000 bond and was released from jail in August.
