A Craigslist.org Hookup Leaves Math Teacher Arrested

Ashraf Boulos Hindi, a math teacher in the William S. Hart School District in Santa Clarita has been arrested in a Ventura County Sheriff’s sting operation at a Motel 6 in Camarillo, where the suspect allegedly provided drugs to an undercover deputy, authorities said.

Apparently, 29-year old Hindi hooked up with a sheriff’s investigator posing as a female seeking companionship through Craigslist.org where he began interacting with her on May 28. To further lure the "adult female," and sheriff’s investigator, Hindi offered to bring cocaine, marijuana and alcohol to the motel, according to Ventura County Sgt. John J. Gleason, where they were to meet.

When Hindi arrived at the Motel 6 about 3 p.m., investigators took him into custody without incident and found him to be in possession of a small quantity of marijuana, authorities said.

Hindi was arrested on suspicion of transporting and offering a controlled substance and possession of controlled substance, and booked into Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility and is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Hindi’s employment as a high school teacher was confirmed and the school officials notified, Gleason said. Further investigation turned up cocaine at his Canyon Country home.
