School Principal Arrested

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police say a San Diego elementary school principal has been arrested after they found drugs and a stolen pistol in her car.

Authorities say Rachel Escobedo — principal of Lee Elementary School — was placed on leave Tuesday after her weekend arrest.

Police Lt. Kevin Mayer says officers were responding to reports of suspicious people in a parked car Saturday night. They found Escobedo in her Honda Accord with a 60-year-old man.

He says she let police search the car. Mayer says police found a loaded .22-caliber pistol reported stolen, a small amount of marijuana, 22 pills and baggies containing a narcotic-like substance.

Escobedo was released from jail Sunday after posting $25,000 in bail.

Arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 17.

A call to her La Mesa home wasn't answered Wednesday.
