A Chatham County middle school teacher was arrested on drug charges Thursday.

Police said Ashley Nicole Dillon, 29, and Landon Scott Lucas, 23, were arrested when police served a drug search warrant at their home on Cassowary Lane.

Chatham County Schools said Dillon is employed by the school system at Horton Middle School as a seventh grade teacher. She has been with the school system for three years.

Dillon is currently suspended with pay, the school system said.

"We are taking the necessary action to ensure that the employee's duties are covered and that student learning is uninterrupted," said Chatham County Schools Interim Superintendent Derrick D. Jordan.

Dillon and Lucas are charged with possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana, maintaining a dwelling for controlled substances, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
