    WAVE 3: Police: Teacher had drugs, $13,000 cash at school (Dec 24 2012)

    Police say it started when an unmarked pill bottle was found in the school office filled with marijuana. No one claimed it, so school leaders checked surveillance video and discovered it had fallen from social studies teacher Kevin Hennegan's pocket. The 56-year-old told investigators that he had collected the bottle from a student and had planned to turn it in to school leaders later in the day. As part of the investigation, a police K9 unit went sniffing around his classroom. The police report indicates the classroom search turned up "one small blue smoking device, one yellow lighter, one white lighter, two white strings used for cleaning pipes, and two toothpicks." That's not all investigators found inside the classroom. The report goes on to say, quote, "Hennegan stated he had $13,000 in cash in the desk drawer of his classroom. Hennegan stated the money was for a friend in financial trouble."

    More would still be uncovered. Investigators say a family member arrived at the school to pick him up, where police say inside the van they found, "a small amount of marijuana stems and small particles on the center floor board." During the Charlestown Police Department's interview with Hennegan, he stated he had more marijuana in his home.
