Teacher faces drug, forgery charges

Posted: Tuesday, October 20, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Authorities arrested an Anchorage elementary school teacher accused of forging prescriptions and illegally obtaining Adderall.

Police said 39-year-old Anisa Kae Nelson faces numerous counts of second-degree forgery and fourth-degree misconduct involving a controlled substance.

Police said the fifth-grade teacher repeatedly forged prescriptions for Adderall and got them filled at different pharmacies. Adderall is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Lt. Dave Parker said there's no evidence Nelson was selling the drug or giving it to anyone else.

The teacher has been placed on administrative leave.
