Vero Beach teacher trafficking Oxycodone

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A Vero Beach middle school teacher in big trouble. The language arts teacher is accused of trafficking in Oxycodone. 

Thirty-six year-old Raquel Wright was arrested Friday after police say she sold 70 Oxycodone pills to an undercover cop for one thousand dollars. The deal allegedly was going down in the parking lot of the Walgreens on US-1 in Vero Beach about five miles from the school.

Wright is a teacher at Oslo Middle School in Vero Beach. She's been with the Indian River County school district since 2001.

Scott Young's daughter is starting the sixth grade at Oslo next month. " I thought it was a pretty good place to bring her. It's upsetting but I'm sure it happens quite a bit other places."

Wright is out of jail after posting 150 thousand dollars bond. No one answered the door at her Vero Beach home. She's scheduled to be arraigned September 17 in Indian River circuit court.
