Police Arrest Man With Drugs At School, Let Sex Offender Go
Police let a registered sex offender go after finding him on the grounds of Fayetteville High School on Aug. 24. Officers arrested a man with him, though, who they say may have been selling pills during the school’s lunch hour.
Fayetteville police arrested Tyler D. Adams, 20, in connection with felony possession of a controlled substance and failure to appear in Johnson City Court for an earlier incident. He is being held in the Washington County Detention Center on $6,190 bond.
School resource officers were patrolling the school grounds Friday and saw two people sitting on the grass outside of the Football Field House with a pitbull. Neither was a student, and officers found Diazepam, a schedule IV narcotic, in Adams’ front shirt pocket, according to a preliminary arrest report.
Adams told police a drunk person gave him the pills three days earlier to sell.
Police did not release the name of the person with Adams, but let the subject go without citation. Police identified the person with Adams is a registered sex offender, the report says. Neither person had an excuse for why they were on school grounds, according to the report.
