      Former Scotland Co. teacher charged in drug case

      Cheyenne Pinson, 30, of Wyaconda, Mo.

      Cheyenne Pinson, 30, of Wyaconda, Mo., is charged with distribution of a controlled substance and felony possession of a controlled substance.

      The former Heartland school teacher has now been officially charged in connection with a drug investigation by the Clark County Sheriff's Office, Scotland County Sheriff's Office, North Missouri Drug Task Force and the Missouri State Highway Patrol. She has since been released on a personal recognizance bond.

      Cheyenne Pinson was formerly the Lifetime Learning Instructor at Scotland County High School.
