Teacher at Seffner Elementary facing pot charges released from jail

TAMPA — A kindergarten teacher at Seffner Elementary School has been released from jail on bail after being arrested on counts that include possession of marijuana with intent to sell and child neglect.

Friday evening, Tampa police executed a search warrant on the home of Tracy Domante, 4314 W Barcelona Ave. Sunday, police released more details of what they say they found in the search.

The search yielded 270 grams of marijuana, 119 grams of hashish oil and numerous pipes, bongs and other paraphernalia, police said. More than $3,700 was seized. Domante told police she was aware of people smoking marijuana in front of her 15-year-old son, an arrest report shows. She also allowed her son to smoke it, police said Sunday.

Domante, 47, faces felony counts of possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell, and child neglect. She also faces misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling for drug use.

Domante, who has worked at Seffner Elementary since 2004, will be suspended with pay until her case is reviewed at the next School Board meeting. She was released from jail Saturday on $11,000 bail.
