CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A Cincinnati Public Schools teacher has been arrested after a “large amount of narcotics” were found in her home.

Laura Morand, who a source says teaches at Evanston Academy, is accused of allowing her Clifford Road home to be used to commit a felony drug offense, according to court documents.

The documents say investigators found narcotics that were packaged for distribution when they searched the home on Nov. 2.

Morand is charged with permitting drug abuse, the documents state.

Evanston Academy’s website lists Morand as a math and social studies teacher for the fifth and sixth grades.

She was released on her own recognizance following a court appearance Friday.

Her arrest is in connection with the arrest of 19-year-old Paul McGee, according to Norwood police.

McGee was arrested for trafficking in drugs and drug possession, records show.

On Nov. 2 at Morand’s home, he was preparing to ship a fentanyl package that weighed 32.91 grams, the documents show. The records also show McGee was also charged with having weapons while under disability.
