A Moon Lake Elementary teaching assistant is accused of possessing fentanyl and heroin after an 18-year-old man died on Feb. 5 at her home in a possible overdose.
Arrest records show that the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office found the drugs and paraphernalia at the home of Marina Deetz, 20, as part of a death investigation.
According to an arrest affidavit cited by the station WTSP, a 17-year-old boy told police he and his 18-year-old friend had gone to Deetz’s apartment and procured fentanyl from the Moon Lake Elementary School employee.
In exchange, the teens gave Deetz cocaine and $50, the witness alleged.
The two young men stayed at the teaching assistant’s apartment, where Deetz allegedly cut the cocaine and fentanyl on black dishes, and all three of them snorted the powder through a blue straw.
