You'll recall it was Thursday night during NewsChannel 11 at 10, we exclusively brought you the raid on Glenn's home near Higginbothem Park off 19th Street.  Heroin, hydro marijuana and marijuana plants recovered from Glenn's house.

Lubbock Police busted Glenn and another man Thursday afternoon for attempting to mail these drugs. Early Friday, Frenship ISD officials held a news conference about Ryan Glenn - a teacher and coach for the district for the last two years.

This alleged crime has the town of Wolfforth stunned by the news of Glenn. According to those we talked to who know him, Glenn was a good teacher, an encouraging coach, and a friend. And never did they think he would the suspect in a felony investigation.

"He was one of our football coaches, he was a cool guy, you know we always used to joke around with him and he encouraged us to work hard," said Frenship 8th grader Cayman Ancell.
