A 35-year-old teacher in Indiana was arrested this week after she was allegedly caught bringing meth to an event at the school, hiding the drug in her hair scrunchie during “Family Fun Night.”

Sarah Jayne Duncan was taken into custody on Wednesday and charged with one count of possession of methamphetamine and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia, court documents reviewed by Law&Crime show.

According to a probable cause affidavit, the incident took place on Sept. 12 at the Helfrich Park Stem Academy where the school was hosting a family night for students. The event, which lasted from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. was attended by Duncan, an eighth grade teacher, and her juvenile daughter, who was a student at the school.

As the event was coming to a close, Duncan allegedly took a picture with two students in a photo booth put in place for the event.

“Both juveniles stated that Duncan let her hair down for the photo,” the affidavit states. “After the photo, the juveniles cleaned up the area and located a blueish colored velvet-type scrunchie with a white zipper on the table. They noticed the scrunchie was heavier than a typical scrunchie, they opened the zipper pouch and observed a glass vial that contained a white powder substance that the two believed to be drugs along with a cut straw with white powder.”

The students brought the scrunchie to another teacher who notified the principal and vice principal. Two janitors who were working that evening told the principals that they had seen Duncan “frantically searching for some kind of hair tie” near the gym doors after the event had ended.
