TULSA - Oklahoma State University-Tulsa police served an arrest warrant on the campus of Will Rogers High School Tuesday, taking a man into custody on a number of charges.
Officers had arrived at the school with a warrant for the arrest of Aundrae Maxey, 27, of Tulsa on a charge of second-degree burglary stemming from an incident last month.
After detaining Maxey, police searched his car -- where they found a gun, nearly two pounds of marijuana, a scale, and about $1,100 in cash, according to the arrest report.
The school district issued a statement late Wednesday morning stating that Maxey was "hired on January 5, 2010 as a paraprofessional at Will Rogers High School."
Paraprofessionals generally work with special needs students in a classroom environment.
The district says he worked at the same school in the same position from August 21, 2006 until October 6, 2008 and had left the job "in good standing" before returning in January of this year.
Maxey faces charges including possession of a firearm while committing a felony, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to obtain a tax stamp, and second-degree burglary.
According to jail records was released at 11:30 p.m. Thursday night after posting bond totaling $21,250.
