Unit 5 Junior High band teacher accused of selling meth to undercover agent

A Unit 5 band teacher is in the McLean County Jail, facing drug charges after what prosecutors describe as a sting operation.

57 year old Craig Swallow was taken into custody by Normal police on Monday.

He's accused of possessing and delivering methamphetamine to an undercover police informant.

According to the Pantagraph, the school district confirmed he taught band at Chiddix Junior High, but will now retire at the end of the month.

A Unit 5 spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
