SAPULPA, Okla. -- The Oklahoma State Board of Education has suspended the teaching certificate of a Sapulpa teacher discovered to be in possession of heroin and needles.

The board held an emergency meeting Thursday that resulted in the suspension of Megan Sloan’s teaching certificate.

Earlier in May, Sloan was arrested after police found needles and heroin in her purse at school.
