— A Wayne County Public Schools instructional assistant and football coach surrendered to police Wednesday after authorities said he sold drugs on school property.

Authorities said the Goldsboro/Wayne County Inter-Agency Drug Task Force received a complaint in August that William Bradford McIntyre, 28, was selling narcotics on school property.

Following an investigation, McIntyre’s home and vehicle were searched last week, and authorities said officers found 1,900 grams of marijuana, narcotics packaging and repackaging materials and a gun.

McIntyre, of 200 Black Woodbine St., was charged with four counts of selling a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school, four counts of possession with intent to sell and deliver a Schedule VI controlled substance, four counts of maintaining a vehicle for a controlled substance, three counts of selling a Schedule VI controlled substance, three counts of delivering a Schedule VI controlled substance, maintaining a residence for a controlled substance and carrying a concealed firearm.

A spokesman for Wayne County Public Schools said McIntyre resigned from his position in the district prior to surrendering to authorities. McIntyre had been hired by the distinct in August and was placed on unpaid leave Dec. 6.

McIntyre was being held Wednesday night under $50,000 secured bond.
