Chemistry teacher allegedly brought "date rape recipes" to school

An Oak Ridge teacher and her husband were arrested on drug charges

CONROE, Texas – An Oak Ridge High chemistry teacher is in big trouble, and her students know it because she was arrested at school.

Haivan Bui was taken into taken custody by school police on Friday.

Investigators said they found "date rape recipes" in a backpack that Bui had with her.

Her arrest came after deputies executed a search warrant at her Woodlands apartment.

According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, deputies found more recipes, methamphetamine, marijuana, numerous prescription medications and Gamma-Hydroxybutyrate, a compound used in date rape drugs.

Bui's husband, Chris Hartwell, was reportedly present during the raid. He was also arrested.

"What if I'm out walking my dog and someone attacks me because she's right here producing a date rape drug," questioned neighbor Karen Cox. "I don't feel safe anymore."

Bui teaches at Lone Star College as well.

Her students at Oak Ridge High said they were in disbelief over the accusations.

"She was really nice. I think she was a good teacher," said sophomore Armando Sanchez.

Armando Sanchez said students started talking when Bui didn't show up for last period Chemistry class.

He said another teacher came to the class and told them that Bui had just been arrested.

"It was kind of crazy. Everyone was like, maybe it's drugs, and it was," explained Sanchez.

Principal Tommy Johnson said the following in an email sent to parents:

"There is no reason to believe that any illegal activity took place at the campus at this time.

We are very disappointed and want to assure you that we are committed to providing a safe learning environment for our students. We will remain vigilant in investigating any and all reports that might affect the well-being of students or staff."

Students are left to question if they ever really knew Bui.

"Many are thinking, she didn't seem like the teacher that would do something like that," said senior Nicholas Marron.

Bui is now charged with possession with intent to deliver and/or manufacture a controlled substance.

Hartwell faces charges of possession of a controlled substance, aggravated possession of a controlled substance and felon in possession of a firearm.
