High School Teacher, Wife of Salisbury Mayor Jailed for Attempting to Buy Drugs from Student, Officials say
The wife of Salisbury Mayor Jake Day is facing drug and related charges following a criminal investigation.
On December 9, 2019 deputies of the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division began an investigation into a reported CDS violation involving a teacher soliciting a student for prescribed medication. The investigation revealed that the teacher, identified as the suspect, Elizabeth Day, solicited a 16-year-old student to purchase two (2) ADHD pills for $20.00.
Day is a teacher at James M. Bennett High School and the student is enrolled at that school as well.
An arrest warrant was obtained for Day, and she was arrested on 12/20/19 and taken to the Wicomico County Detention Center. Day was later released on her own recognizance.
Additionally, with the obvious conflict, the Wicomico County States Attorney’s Office has asked for and received the assistance of the Calvert County States Attorney’s Office to handle this matter. The investigation is on-going.
