The principal of a northern California elementary school has been arrested for allegedly selling crystal meth.

FOX News Radio's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

Eric Lewis was the principal of Montague Elementary until he was placed on unpaid leave last week.  An undercover officer set up a meeting with Lewis through a dating website, after which he was arrested for possessing and trying to sell meth.  In his home, they found pills, scales and even more drugs.

(Students' Grandmother) "If you do something like this, you're gonna, sooner or later, get caught.  It's bad that the children have to know that someone they looked up to like that get caught up in something like this."

That's the grandmother of two students who go to the school.  School officials say they've already replaced him with an interim principal.
