A teacher in Cannon County has been arrested for illegally purchasing and distributing prescription drugs.

The TBI, along with the Cannon County Sheriff’s Office, began looking into Gannon’s activities a couple of weeks ago.
During their investigation, authorities discovered that he was reportedly buying and distributing prescription narcotics.
Officials are continuing to investigate whether or not any of these transactions happened at the school or involved students.
Gannon has been charged with conspiracy to deliver schedule II prescription narcotics.
He was placed in the Cannon County Jail on $5,000 bond.
