Tymetrica Cohn, age 45 and of Kentwood, was arrested Friday (January 20, 2023) on narcotics charges following a Crime Stoppers tip claiming she was selling drugs to a student, says Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office Chief Jimmy Travis.
Earlier this week, the TPSO received an anonymous tip that a student purchased "edible Marijuana" from a school employee. TPSO Narcotics agents began investigating the complaint and soon identified Cohn as the suspect.
While Cohn was not an employee of the Tangipahoa Parish School System, she was working as a substitute cafeteria worker at Sumner High School at the time of her arrest. According to Superintendent Melissa Stilley, Cohn was employed by ESS, a staffing service used to place substitute employees in schools.
Cohn was charged with Possession/Distribution of CDS I and Distribution of a CDS in a Drug-Free Zone.
