Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover High School teacher arrested last week on drug charges is still on the job.

A school district spokeswoman says the district says it is investigating Catherine Entrocaso after an Alcohol Law Enforcement agents arrested her for possession of schedule II narcotics.

ALE arrested Entrocaso Thursday on US 421 in New Hanover County. Assistant Special Agent Jason Locklear says Entrocaso was arrested with 13 Adderall pills in non-prescription bottles without a label.

One of Entrocaso’s former students says she did not see this coming. She says most students don’t know because she is still working.

“Every time I saw her, she never seemed like she was high or anything,” student Kashia Aiken said. “People in her class, I don’t think they feel threatened in any way.”

Aiken says she thinks Entrocaso should get help because she is a teacher and has a daughter.

Entrocaso is scheduled for court June 13.
