WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County teacher arrested earlier this year and later indicted for drug possession has quit her job.

New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum says Catherine Elizabeth Entrocaso, 29, resigned Oct. 21.

An Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) agent pulled Entrocaso over for speeding May 23 on US 421 in New Hanover County. ALE Assistant Special Agent Jason Locklear said Entrocaso was arrested with 13 Adderall pills in non-prescription bottles without a label. Adderall is a stimulant, often prescribed for attention deficit disorder.

The school district suspended Entrocaso from her job as an English teacher at New Hanover High School five days after the arrest.

In August a New Hanover County grand jury indicted Entrocaso for possession of a schedule II drug.

Court records show Entrocaso is due back in New Hanover County Court Tuesday to face the felony charge.
