Teacher charged with selling Oxy’s


Police say a teacher at North Magoffin Elementary School has been arrested on drug trafficking charges.

Darrell B. Patrick, 46, of Salyersville, was arrested Tuesday on six counts of first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

A news release from Operation UNITE, an anti-drug initiative, says investigators conducted an undercover investigation between August and October in which detectives purchased Oxycodone from Patrick at his home.

Officials say investigators have no reason to believe Patrick sold drugs on school grounds or to any children.

Additional charges are pending with the Magoffin County Grand Jury.

Patrick was lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.
