The Sheriff’s office is also investigating several claims that Henderson was selling drugs to students while on school grounds and possessing them.
Anderson was arrested on Thursday evening while working at the Dale Cassens Education Complex on drug possession charges in St. Lucie County and may have been selling the narcotics on campus, the Sheriff’s office said Friday.
Sheriff Mascara said Henderson worked as a custodian at Dale Cassens Education Complex, which is described as a K-12 alternative education site located at 1905 south 11th street in Fort Pierce.
Sheriff Ken Mascara said that at the moment, Henderson had been charged only with possessing drugs on a school campus.
“School Resource Deputies received information on Thursday, which suggested that Henderson may have been selling drugs on the school campus,” Mascara said in a statement. “After questioning Henderson, deputies found MDMA, LSD, and Xanax in his possession.”
Sheriff Mascara said Sheriff’s Office detectives are still investigating the allegations that prompted the arrest.
“We continue to work diligently with St. Lucie Public Schools and our neighboring law enforcement partners to provide a safe learning environment for our children,” Mascara said. “It is important for parents to talk to their children about not only the dangers of drug use but also the consequences. It is our job to protect students from predators on and off campus.”
However, the Sheriff’s office stated that it is still investigating the allegations that led to Gary Henderson’s arrest. They are asking anyone with more information about Gary Henderson to contact the Sheriff’s office.
