Heroin Found In Hudson Valley Elementary School Bathroom

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Heroin continues to be a problem throughout Westchester County and the Hudson Valley.

The latest incident occurred after the drug was found inside the faculty bathroom of an elementary school in Sullivan County, according to multiple reports. 

Needles and empty bags were discovered for the second time since December in Benjamin Cosor Elementary School in the Town of Fallsburg, just over the Orange County border, News 12 Westchester reported. 

There are six staffers who are currently under investigation. Faculty members have hired attorneys and stopped cooperating with police, News 12 Westchester said.

WABC-7 reports the staffers have declined to submit to urine tests under advice of the teachers union.

A letter to parents from the school district addressing that matter has prompted shockwaves among parents, WABC-7 reports.
