Aldine ISD asst. principal quits after drugs discovered in her car

Police have charged an assistant principal at Caraway Intermediate school with possession of marijuana, and she has resigned her position.

The incident happened last Wednesday, when Aldine ISD police conducted a search in the school’s faculty parking lot, with the aid of their drug dog, Agbar.

The assistant principal, Kathy MacLennon, 44, was asked for permission to search her car, which she granted, according to school officials. The police then found 6-1/2 grams of the marijuana in her purse, in the trunk of her car. The charge is a misdemeanor.

According to AISD spokesperson Mike Keeney, MacLennon has worked for the district since 1987, and at Caraway for 8 years.

The drug dog is assigned to the AISD police force and partially paid for by the Aldine Community Improvement District. It is routinely used for searches on all the campuses of AISD.
