AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Three people, including a former Sunray ISD principal, are behind bars after police say they were in possession of drugs.

Around 2:37 a.m. on Monday, Amarillo police responded to a hotel on Western Plaza Drive.

A group of people were disturbing hotel guests by coming and going from a room.

Officers found Chad Edward Walker, Amanda Leeann Walker and former Sunray High School Principal Sidney Lee Whiteley in the room.

According to police, methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia were in open view.

Chad and Amanda Walker were arrested on charges of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance.

Whiteley was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

He had tendered his resignation to the school in December of 2017, which was to become effective in June 2018.

However, Mr. Whiteley was removed from his position on March 27, and his duties were assigned to other staff.
