An American teacher has been cleared of all charges after a marijuana package containing her phone number was found, however, police found no further evidence linking her to the package.
A package containing 199 grams of marijuana was delivered to an Emirates Post Dubai branch last year, it had the PE teacher’s number on it, however, it was addressed to different name.
Once the police found the illicit substance among other packages, an arrest warrant was made in the teacher’s name and she was arrested at the airport on July 3, when she was due to fly home for her summer holidays, according to local reports.
During the investigation, the teacher denied all knowledge of the package and refused to provide a urine sample for the Dubai Police anti-narcotics department who were dealing with the case, and therefore she was held for two months until the court appearance.
The woman was cleared of all charges when further evidence could not be found
