A temporary custodian was arrested last week at North Point High School on drug charges.

According to a press release from the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, the school’s resource officer, Cpl. C. Cusmano, received information Jan. 10 that a temporary custodian at the Waldorf school might have been selling drugs to students.

Cusmano, along with members of the sheriff’s office’s narcotics enforcement unit, the neighborhood enforcement unit and school administrators, confirmed that the suspect, Kiayer Kenneth Chapman, 23, of Accokeek, was a temporary custodian working the night shift.

A police dog searched Chapman’s car at 8 p.m. and alerted that drugs were in the car, police reported.

Police said the investigation revealed two sandwich-size bags of marijuana with a street value of about $500. A digital scale and cash also were found.

Chapman was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance with the intent to distribute, possession of a controlled dangerous substance on school property and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Chapman is being held at the Charles County Detention Center in La Plata on $10,000 bail.
