SEAFORD, Del.– Delaware State Police say troopers arrested a Seaford High School teacher after marijuana was located in his parked vehicle on school grounds Monday afternoon.

According to police, troopers assigned to the DSP K9 Division, as well as a K9 assigned to the Dover Police Department, were requested by the Seaford School District to conduct a drug search of the building and parking lot.

Three state police K9s and a Dover PD K9 performed the search around 3 p.m. with the assistance of school administrators, authorities said.

According to police, while conducting a search in the south parking lot of the school, one of the K9s alerted to the presence of drugs in a Jeep Liberty, registered to Ryan A. Harris, 33, of Mechanicsburg, Pa. Located in Harris' Jeep inside a bag were 20.8 grams of marijuana, a digital scale and a glass pipe used to smoke the marijuana, police said.

All evidence was turned over to the DSP school resource officer assigned to Seaford High, police said.

Harris was brought to the Seaford Police Department where he was charged with possession of marijuana with an aggravating factor (school zone), and two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia. He was then released on $1,000 unsecured bond.

According to the Seaford School District, Harris has been suspended from the job pending the outcome of the investigation.
