Six Shooter– The war on drugs claimed another casualty when “the system”
swallowed a youthful woman whole, the end result of a somewhat
lengthy, very exacting legal process.
On a gray and
rainy Friday morning before Christmas, two months after she was first
questioned, a Waco Independent School District police officer
arrested Alayne Caroline Ballantine, who resides in the 1900 block of
Howard, Waco, for forgery and possession of heroin at the Lake Air
Montessori Magnet School.
At the time
of the offense, October 20, she worked there as a substitute teacher.
arrived promptly to arrest her at half-past 9 a.m. on Friday,
December 19, at a location in the 2000 block of Alexander in this
city. Their arrest report lists her as unemployed.
