California School Janitor Caught Selling Marijuana to Students

A Visalia Unified School District janitor was arrested after allegedly selling drugs to students.

A janitor for a school district in California was booked Friday after allegedly selling drugs to students at the high school he worked at.

22-year-old Christopher McGowen was a janitor for Visalia Unified School District in California when school officials received a tip he was selling drugs on the campus of Visalia Charter Study, according to the Visalia Times-Delta.

McGowen was arrested after police said they found LSD, marijuana, psilocybin mushrooms and ecstasy in his home, which they determined he intended to sell.  McGowen has been employed by the school district since April 2014 and is now on administrative leave.
