A Florida middle school teacher is facing drug charges after a deputy found her asleep in a car outside a convenience store.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested 40-year-old Robin Ramos on drug charges in Lakeland.
According to investigators, a deputy who pulled into a RaceTrac store on Highway 98 saw the woman sleeping in the driver seat of a car. When Ramos woke up, she told deputies she was waiting for someone to drive her home since she didn’t have a driver’s license.
Deputies could not find the keys to the car, but they did find a syringe containing a clear liquid in the passenger seat of the car, and a metal spoon encrusted with a white crystal-like substance. Both items field tested positive for methamphetamine Ramos, according to the sheriff’s office, admitted she occasionally uses meth, but not on this morning.
The sheriff’s office said Ramos, according to the website, worked as a 6th grade math teacher at Kathleen Middle School.
Ramos is in the Polk County Jail charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
