WATERFORD, Mich. (WJBK) - A teacher's aide in Waterford is under investigation for allegedly buying drugs from students.

Patricia Harker says she was concerned about her son's behavior and that he may have been doing drugs, so she looked at his text messages. She says she found inappropriate messages between her 16-year-old son and a classroom assistant at Kingsley Montgomery School dating back to January 2014.

Some of the text messages include the son sending the teacher a photo of marijuana, saying, "This what I got for tonight and I passed my drug test lol."

The teacher allegedly responds, "U need to front me a dime!"

In another text message, dating back to April 3, the son says, "Jawon said call him he gots the kush."

The teacher allegedly responds, "Tell him I won't be able to till I get back from Florida!"

Kush is a slang term for marijuana.

Harker says she reached out to the Waterford School District, then to the Waterford Police Department.

Waterford police are investigating and say they will pass their findings to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office.

Harker tells FOX 2's Randy Wimbley the teacher has been removed from the school, and that the school district is conducting an internal investigation. The district has declined to comment.
