The principal of Coronado High School sent an email to parents Tuesday, asking them to be aware of two men who may be selling drugs to students.
The email noted that two adults from Chicago who relocated to Coronado recently “are attempting to involve [our] students in the sale and purchase of drugs.”
It identified the two 20-year-old men by name, and included their race and pictures.
Coronado police said the two men are not facing charges and have no criminal record in Coronado.
“I’m not saying I disagree with the sentiment and the care for our children but without knowing if those individuals are guilty, it was quite persecuting,” said Tanya Wright, a Coronado parent.
Police told NBC 7, they spoke with Coronado High School Principal Jennifer Moore about a grand theft incident involving the two men and a student from Coronado High School. The two men are persons of interest in the theft case, according to Lea Corbin, public information officer for Coronado police.
Police said they never authorized a school-wide email to be sent to parents.
But they would not discuss details regarding the theft case because it is currently being investigated.
NBC 7 reached out to Principal Jennifer Moore, but our calls remain unanswered.
