HANNIBAL (AP) - Former A.D. Stowell Elementary School principal Joshua Foust appeared for his first court appearance Friday.

Foust is charged with drug possession with intent to deliver. Authorities allege he dealt a few thousand dollars-worth of heroin with his brother and another man.

The 33-year-old married father is a Hannibal High School graduate.

Parent Brent Riley said Foust "always seemed to have the kids' best interest at heart," but said he had no compassion for drug dealers.

Investigators said there's no indication Foust dealt drugs on school grounds or to students or staff.
