LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A teacher at Fairview Elementary was arrested after pills were found in her purse and in her classroom that she did not have a prescription for.

38-year-old Kelly Fontenot of Ragley was arrested by Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's authorities after an investigation found several pill bottles in her purse inside her classroom.

The bottles contained Hydrocodone and Somas for which she did not have a prescription. Deputies and school administrators also searched her classroom and found a container under her desk with more prescription pills inside.

Fontenot was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession of CDS Schedule III; 2 counts of possession of CDS Schedule IV; and possession of drugs on school property.

Judge Wilford Carter set her bond at $10,000.
