Elementary Teacher Busted for Selling Pot

INVERNESS, FL (970 WFLA) - A Citrus County elementary school teacher is under arrest for selling marijuana from her home.

Officials from the Citrus County Sheriff's Office say 55-year-old Kimberly Hellenburg was taken into custody after undercover officers purchased large amounts of pot from her home in Inverness.

Detectives found more than two pounds of reefer, including a half pound located in her bedroom, and other assorted paraphernalia throughout the residence. 

Hellenburg is a teacher at Pleasant Grove Elementary School and has been employed by the Citrus County school district for almost 30 years.

Her son, 19-year-old Brendan Brown, was arrested last month at the same residence and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. 

Hellenburg is charged with two counts of sale of a controlled substance and two counts of possession of a controlled substance. Her bond is set at $8,000 for all charges.
