Keene, N.H. teacher arrested, accused of having drugs at school

KEENE, N.H. (WHDH) - A teacher in Keene, New Hampshire was arrested after police investigated claims that she used drugs at the school where she worked.

Faculty at Keene High School called police back in August to report drug behavior by Diane Delisle, 54 of Westmoreland, NH, claiming she had been using drugs while at the school.

Police said said Delisle allowed officers to search her purse, but arranged for another person, via text, to remove the purse from its actual location in her classroom.

After a continued investigation, it was found that Delisle had removed a cut-off straw, a pill grinder and a bag of white powder from her purse.

The teacher was charged with a felony count of falsifying physical evidence.

Delisle was released on $10,000 bail and will appear in court on Nov. 3.
