Police: Employee Brought Meth Pipe to School

South San Antonio school police arrested an employee who they said brought brass knuckles and a methamphetamine pipe onto school property.

KENS-TV reported that South San Antonio Independent School District officers arrested Jake Contreras Wednesday after receiving a tip the day before. Contreras is charged with possession of a weapon in a prohibited place and possession of a controlled substance in a drug-free zone.

Police said he resigned immediately from his job as a paraprofessional redirection aide.

Contreras was questioned at Frank Madla Elementary school and officers searched his backpack. They said they found a set of brass knuckles and a pipe that tested positive for traces of meth.

Contreras was released from the Bexar County Jail on $30,000 bond. Online jail records didn't list an attorney.
