A California couple is accused of planting illegal drugs on an elementary school volunteer because they weren’t happy with how the woman was supervising their son.
Jill and Kent Easter, both attorneys, were arrested Tuesday after they allegedly hatched a plan to frame the woman at Plaza Vista School in Irvine, Calif.
Police say Kent, 38, put a bag of prescription painkillers, marijuana and a marijuana pipe in the volunteer’s car, then called police to say he had seen her hide the drugs in her car.
Cops responded to the scene and found the drugs in the woman’s car. Surveillance footage shows Kent calling Irvine police from a hotel near his office in Newport Beach.
“She [the volunteer] was shocked,” said Irvine Police Lt. Julia Engen. “She had no idea where those items came from. Things just didn’t seem to add up.”
Investigators began to eye the Easters when they learned the volunteer had been in class at the time Kent said she was hiding the drugs.
The couple, charged with felony conspiracy and false imprisonment, face up to three years in prison if convicted.
