SAPULPA, Okla. -- Police say an Oklahoma elementary school teacher was arrested on multiple charges after accidentally leaving her Facebook page open on a school computer.

Officers were called to Holmes Park Elementary School on Monday after a teacher found Megan Sloan's Facebook page open on a computer, according to KOKI-TV.

Authorities said the page featured a conversation where Sloan reportedly asked about using and selling heroin.

Detectives said during the investigation, Sloan allegedly admitted to pawning two iPads that belonged to the school district. She also reportedly admitted to using money from field trips for gas and drugs.

When officers searched Sloan's purse, they allegedly found syringes and substances that tested positive for methamphetamine and heroin.

Sloan was arrested on embezzlement, three counts of possession of controlled drugs within 1,000 feet of a public institution and possession of drug paraphernalia.

"We are working closely and cooperating with Sapulpa Police to investigate this matter fully and resolve it," Sapulpa Public Schools assistant superintendent Johnny Bilby said in a statement.
