Davis Middle School substitute teacher arrested in marijuana bust

Random K-9 search led to discovery of drugs

SAN ANTONIO – A substitute teacher was arrested after marijuana was found in his backpack, school district officials said.

The San Antonio Independent School District confirmed the Robert Pinnix III was arrested on campus Friday at Davis Middle School.

The district said Pinnix was found with a small amount of the drug in his bag during a random K-9 search.

A spokesperson with the district said Pinnix no longer works for the district.

This is the second SAISD employee to be arrested for drug possession on campus in the last month. On Sept. 13, a teacher at Lanier High School was arrested for the same thing.

Pinnix is charged with a Class A misdemeanor because he was caught with the marijuana in a drug-free zone.
