Man accused of smoking meth, falling asleep in northeast Nebraska school

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Stanton County deputies arrested a man who’d fallen asleep on the job at Woodland Elementary School.

The sheriff’s office says it got a call about a contracted employee who was sleeping at the school on Tuesday morning.

School staff spotted the man before the school day began and believed he was under the influence of drugs.

The employee, 24-year-old Rueben Longoria of Norfolk, was found with methamphetamine before he left the school, deputies say.

Deputies caught up with him later, and they say he told them he “might have” used meth at the school.

Deputies took Longoria into custody on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine.

Prior to his arrest, Longoria was supposed to be cleaning the school.
