A resource officer at a Tennessee school arrested a truck driver who delivered supplies to schools with illegal narcotics and a loaded gun last week, authorities said.

Sewanee Elementary School Resource Manager Josh Alexander was greeting students in the building Thursday morning when he smelled the smell of marijuana coming from a truck delivering produce to the school as the vehicle passed ahead of him, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said.

Alexander spoke to the delivery driver, who confirmed there were illegal narcotics in the vehicle, authorities said.

Alexander searched the vehicle and recovered 7.6 ounces of suspected fentanyl, 9 ounces of suspected marijuana, a loaded 9mm handgun and $4,463 in cash, the sheriff’s office said.
