Police say Bright Futures Academy is a kindergarten through 12th grade private school for special needs students.
Upon further investigation, police say a student at the Bright Futures Academy overdosed on fentanyl at their home a week before officers responded to the school. Authorities reportedly learned an employee who worked as a bus driver and campus security possibly gave the highly lethal drug to the student.
The employee, Melissa Harloam-Garrison, reportedly lives on the school property with her husband, 58-year-old David Garrison. During a search of their home, police say they found over a hundred suspected fentanyl pills, two handguns, and ammunition of various types.
According to police, Harloam-Garrison was arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center on charges of possession of narcotics for sale, sale of narcotics to minors, possession of controlled substances, drug addict in possession of a firearm, possession of a firearm on school campus, being a person prohibited from owning or possession a firearm, and child endangerment. She remains held on $50,000 bail.
Harloam-Garrison's husband was also reportedly arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for possessing a firearm on campus and being a person prohibited from owning or possessing a firemarm. He remains held on $25,000 bail.
