Clopper Mill School Staffer Arrested on Felony Drug Charges

Montgomery County Police have arrested a special education teacher’s aide and another man on illegal narcotics charges after a traffic stop in Germantown revealed drugs and drug paraphernalia.

   Police arrested Casey Johnson, 32 of Hyattsville, and Anthony Haqq, 28, of Silver Spring on multiple felony drug charges. Johnson has worked as a special education teacher’s aide at Clopper Mill Elementary School in Germantown.

   According to police, Johnson was pulled over by MCPD for driving with a burned out brake light near the corner of Century Boulevard and Middlebrook Road in Germantown on Friday, Jan. 9.

    “Johnson was nervously fumbling around looking for her license and the vehicle registration,” according to the charging documents filed in Montgomery County District Court. Johnson’s voice was trembling and hands were shaking uncontrollably, the report states.

   The officer called for a K9 unit to further investigate, and upon opening the truck found a backpack containing a large back of marijuana and an electronic scale. Police said Johnson was also found with a wad of a $544 in cash.  

   Johnson, who has been on medical leave from Clopper Mill Elementary School since October, has been charged with possession of controlled dangerous substances with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana.

   Haqq, who has been arrested on narcotics charges in Montgomery County multiple times since 2006 – including two indictments, one in May 2007 and another in June 2011, faces four drug related charges including intent to distribute stemming from Friday’s arrest.

   If convicted of all charges both Johnson and Haqq could serve up to 11-years in state prison. Both Haqq and Johnson were released on bond and await trial.

   MCPS spokesman Dana Tofig said via email that Johnson has worked at Clopper Mill Elementary School for five years and had been on leave since October. “The arrest has nothing to do with the school or her work at the school,” said Tofig. “We will investigate this matter internally and take appropriate action”
