Wilson County Deputies charged Jonathan Daniel West with one felony count of having a gun on educational property and misdemeanor counts of carrying a concealed gun, possession of up to one-half ounce of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

A $10,000 secured bond was issued for West.

West reported a gun was missing from his vehicle to the Beddingfield High school resource officer, according to Wilson County Sheriff’s Office Chief of Staff Wanda Samuel.

“Mr. West reported that his vehicle was locked but his window was left partially down. He reported that his weapon was stolen from underneath the car seat,” Samuel’s press release reads.

In an interview with sheriff’s detectives, Mr. West “attempted to dispose of drug paraphernalia and marijuana.”

West has been a technical education teacher at Beddingfield high since 2017.

Wilson County Schools officials said that, as of November 10, West was no longer employed in the school district and it is unclear if he resigned or was fired.
