A Rogers County teacher is out of jail following her weekend arrest on drug charges in Tulsa County.
According to Deputy Chief Mark Carter of the Sand Springs Police Department, Sharon K. Comer was the passenger in a vehicle pulled over for a traffic stop Sand Springs, when she was found to be in possession of an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine.
Comer is a teacher with the Foyil School District in Rogers County.
According to the arrest report filed with the Sand Springs Police Department, shortly before midnight on Feb. 14, Officer Tyler Detring pulled over a blue Chevy pickup on Highway 97 in Sand Springs for an improper turn.
After gaining permission to search the vehicle, Detring observed Comer — who was a passenger in the vehicle — to be in possession of what appeared to be a “hollow pen tube,” sometimes used as a “snort straw” for the ingestion of narcotics, the report indicated.
When he attempted to place her in custody, Comer resisted and Detring then placed her under arrest, according to the report.
After a search of the vehicle was made, a substance was found, which tested positive as methamphetamine.
Comer was arrested and  booked into Tulsa County Jail early Saturday on charges of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She later bonded out. 
The driver of the vehicle — Steve Hooper — was released from custody after being cited for driving under suspension, driving without insurance (verification), and improper turn.
Foyil Superintendent Rod Carter said Comer was not in class, but declined comment about the arrest, noting the school is currently investigating the matter before deciding on what, if any, action to take against Comer.
