School Principal Charged With Marijuana Possession Out Of Jail

CORAL SPRINGS (CBS4) – A Coral Springs principal who was busted for allegedly possessing drugs was out of jail on bond Saturday morning.

Amanda Miles, 60, principal at Coral Park Elementary School, was released from Broward County Jail just after 4 a.m. Saturday.

Miles was taken into custody at her home in the 100 block of NW 93 Terrace after Coral Springs Police searched her home Friday and found marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to Coral Springs Police spokesperson Lt. Joe McHugh.

She was charged with felony drug possession and taken to Broward County’s main jail in Fort Lauderdale.

She was not the only one arrested, police say. Also in custody is her 18-year-old son, Michael Miles.

McHugh said the arrest was off school grounds and had nothing to do with the school or the students there.

A glass smoking pipe was found in the nightstand allegedly belonging to Miles, and a tube of herb was found in the master bath cabinet, according to the arrest affidavit.

Marijuana allegedly belonging to Miles and another portion belonging to her son were found, according to police.

A Broward County schools spokeswoman said district administrators were searching for an interim principal.
