WEST MEMPHIS, AR - Authorities in West Memphis have arrested an elementary school teacher, charging her with carrying methamphetamine to school.  Police say the woman also had a working meth lab at her home.

Police arrested 36-year-old Kellie Stewart Beasley as she returned to Faulk Elementary School around lunchtime.  Police say she had meth in her pocket and two men inside a shed at her home making the illegal substance.

Police say it does not appear Beasley distributed the drug at school.

Beasley was charged yesterday with possession of a controlled substance, manufacturing and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Names of the two men who were arrested were not released.  Beasley resigned from her job.
