An aide at the Belleville Area Special Services Cooperative had heroin in her possession, according to police.
Aubrey C. Murden, 23, was charged Tuesday with possession of less than 15 grams of heroin. She was arrested Aug. 10. Details of the arrest were not immediately clear.
Murden is an individual-care aide with Belleville Area Special Services Cooperative, the organization confirmed Thursday. On arrest documents, Murden listed her job as a teacher’s aide at Wirth Middle School, said St. Clair Sheriff’s Department Capt. Bruce Fleshren.
Cahokia School District Superintendent Art Ryan didn’t recognize Murden’s name and said she wasn’t a district employee. It wasn’t immediately clear which school Murden has served.
BASSC works with 24 schools across the metro-east to help students with disabilities, behavior disorders, hearing impairments, cognitive disorders and autism. They provide special education programs to those students who fall into those categories and may need extra help.
Murden has no other criminal charges in St. Clair or Madison counties.
