Police have arrested the dean of students at a Brooklyn high school after he was caught doing his alleged side job — selling marijuana, officials said Thursday.
Robert Wyatt, 30, was nabbed in an undercover buy on E. 94th St. near Clarkson Ave. in East Flatbush about 5 p.m. Wednesday, according to cops.
Wyatt told arresting officers that he was a dean of students at Thomas Jefferson High School on Pennsylvania Ave. in East New York, according to a police source. He is technically assigned to the High School for Civil Rights there.
“He’s a good guy. We’ve always worked well together,” said a school employee Thursday. “He was here yesterday. I can’t believe it’s him.”
He started working for the school system in 2013 and became a teacher at the school in 2016. His salary is $63,037 a year.
“This alleged behavior is unacceptable, and this individual has been removed from the school and reassigned away from students pending the resolution of his criminal case,” the Department of Education said in a statement.
Wyatt was charged with pot possession and sale. His arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court was pending Thursday afternoon.
