A Freedom Area schoolteacher was arrested on drug charges Tuesday after a surveillance camera in his office showed him snorting what appeared to be drugs.

James Summers, 41, of Darlington is charged with possession of drug paraphernalia and corruption of minors, said New Sewickley police Chief Ronald Leindecker.

According to a news release, Freedom Area Superintendent Jeffrey Fuller conducted an internal investigation of possible misconduct by Mr. Summers and installed a surveillance camera in his office.

The footage showed Mr. Summers inhaling a substance through a tube and in later footage showed him giving the substance to a juvenile to inhale.

Mr. Summers was arraigned Tuesday and given a $200,000 bond. He remained in Beaver County Prison Tuesday evening.
