NYC principal arrested on drug charges

NEW YORK (AP) -- A Brooklyn elementary school principal has been arrested on charges of trying to smuggle drugs into a maximum-security upstate prison.

The Daily News reports that Public School 28 Principal Sadie Silver and a male companion were arrested Friday after state police said they carried heroin and prescription drugs into the Coxsackie Correctional Facility.

Police said the 40-year-old Silver and 34-year-old Michael Acosta had a 10-year-old child with them.

Silver and Acosta face felony charges of promoting prison contraband and criminal possession of a controlled substance as well as a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

Silver and Acosta were released on bond. Information on their attorneys was not available.

City education officials reassigned Silver to an administrative center away from students.
