CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) WDBJ7 is learning new details about a Christiansburg teacher charged with selling drugs.

William Calloway was arrested Thursday on three drug-related charges.
He's out of jail on bond.

In September, police accused Calloway of selling drugs from his home in Christiansburg to an informant who recorded the transaction, according to newly filed search warrants. Members of the New River Regional Drug Task Force helped with the investigation.

Police searched his home, according to the warrant, and took a plastic bag with plant material, four pills wrapped in plastic, cell phones, computers, and two cars.

The Montgomery County Schools spokesperson says he is currently working at CHS.

Last school year he was a service learning teacher and was previously a history teacher.

WDBJ7 interviewed Calloway last school year as he unveiled a new history exhibit at Christiansburg High.

The veteran teacher is credited with helping start the town's first Veteran's Day parade and is usually spotted collecting tickets and cheering on students at Christiansburg sporting events.

Calloway has taught within the school system for more than 40 years and is very well-known and respected in this community.

He is due in General District Court for an arraignment next week.
