Providence teacher faces drug charges

November 8, 2011

Providence public schools have launched an investigation into whether a teacher distributed drugs at a city middle school.

Bruce Smith, a teacher at Gilbert Stuart Middle School faces charges for possessing cocaine with intent to deliver. Authorities say they found more than 24 grams of the drug and more than $1,000 in Smith’s Coventry home.

Providence school officials have suspended Smith pending the outcome of the legal proceedings. They say so far there is no evidence he did anything illegal at Gilbert Stuart Middle School.

Smith was arrested on Friday, and online court records show he is now out on bail. He is due back in court on December 12th.
