FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) — A Wayne High School employee is facing drug-related charges that were filed Friday.
27-year-old Marcus L Falkner, an administrative assistant at Wayne High School, made his initial appearance in court Monday morning.
According to court documents, detectives from the Fort Wayne Narcotics Bureau served a search warrant at Falkner’s home where he lives with two roommates. Detectives found several “foil boats” which are handmade smoking devices used to ingest methamphetamine, hollow tubes used to ingest meth and a straight pipe with a “chore boy” which police say is commonly used to smoke crack cocaine.
Items in the home were field tested and tested positive for meth.
Falkner admitted to police that a glass pipe that had been found in a bedroom closet was used by him to smoke “spice”, according to court documents. Falkner told them that the other paraphernalia belonged to his roommates.
A Fort Wayne Community Schools spokesperson confirmed that Falkner is an employee at Wayne H.S. and has been employed there since December 2007. He was arrested on school grounds Friday.
Falkner is charged with maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony and possession of paraphernalia, a Class A misdemeanor.
