Warren Teacher Charged with Bringing Drugs to School Officially Fired
A school teacher who is charged with bringing drugs into his classroom is now officially out of a job.
The Warren County School Board formally fired Matthew Kiser, 44, at its meeting Monday.
As Erie News Now first reported in April, police arrested Kiser after they allegedly found methamphetamine, marijuana and other drugs in his backpack inside a classroom at the Beaty Warren Middle School.
Investigators charged Kiser for drug possession with the intent to deliver.
He is accused of taking 2 grams of meth, 75 grams of marijuana and more than 100 prescription pills into school.
Police said they received an anonymous tip that Kiser was using drugs at school.
He is scheduled to appear before a district judge for his preliminary hearing July 2.
