The Harnett County Sheriff’s office has arrested and charged 39-year-old Edward Brock Pace with possession of marijuana with intent to sell and deliver, delivering marijuana, maintaining a drug vehicle and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

Pace was arrested by deputies at his home on September 26th and was released on $100,000 bond the following day.

According to the Sheriff’s office, Pace met with a student off school grounds and gave that student some marijuana. It’s unclear if it was given to the student or sold to them.

School officials confirm that he resigned from his position at the school the same day he was arrested. According to state law, teachers are required to give a 30-day written notice.
