Former El Paso Chemistry Teacher Pleads Guilty To Making Meth
Meet our real life Breaking Bad.
Former Irving High School teacher John W. Gose pleaded guilty to manufacturing and possession of meth on Monday according to the Dona Ana County District Attorney’s office.
Gose was a science teacher in both Las Cruces and El Paso and was pulled over in October for a traffic stop. According to police, they found an ice chest filled with glassware and chemicals inside of his vehicle. Tests later confirmed that there were traces of methamphetamine in them. After, investigators searched Gose’s home and found all the ingredients needed to produce meth. Authorities believe there were enough ingredients to make a pound of meth, worth about a little under $45,000 on the street.
According to KVIA, Gose taught at Irvin High School in El Paso for 8 1/2 years. He was a science and chemistry teacher. He also taught for various times at Oñate High School and Camino Real Middle School.
Gose plead guilty to four counts and must undergo a 60 day evaluation before sentencing.
