A Bartow High School teacher was arrested Friday on drug charges.
Polk County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home of John Michael Garrison, 45, after detectives received a tip that Garrison had marijuana in his possession.
Detectives say they could smell marijuana when Garrison answered the door of his Lakeland home.
Police searched his home and say they found a metal grinder used to grind marijuana along with a glass pipe and a small bag of marijuana.
Detectives say Garrison admitted he “smoked a joint earlier.”
He was arrested on a charged of possession of marijuana under 20 grams and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Garrison was released from jail on October 25, after posting a $500 bond.
