The principal of a Santa Clara public school faces an escalating set of criminal charges this week after a federal investigation uncovered more suspicious evidence. Although authorities initially arrested the principal for drug possession, a search of the principal's home yielded vials of a date rape drug and a number of hidden cameras.
Investigators sprang a trap on the principal when he arrived to meet a person he met on an online dating site. That person was actually an undercover agent and the principal sent him incriminating texts offering to share or sell methamphetamines. Officers initially began investigating the principal after a tip regarding illegal drugs.
When the agents arrested him, the principal had methamphetamines and a date-rape drug on his person.
