A custodian assigned to a school in Bradley County has been arrested and fired after deputies charged him with marijuana possession.

In a Bradley County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) arrest affidavit, deputies say they encountered Aaron Goode outside Charleston Elementary's maintenance building on Thursday.

Deputies say Goode smelled like marijuana. The affidavit says a further search of the maintenance building revealed no evidence of or smell of marijuana smoking inside.

After arranging a meeting with Goode through the school's principal, Dr. Candice Belt, deputies say Goode admitted to using marijuana off-campus at his home. The affidavit also says he gave deputies a pipe with a tenth of a gram of marijuana inside.

Deputies arrested Aaron Devalle Goode and charged him with simple possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violation of a drug-free school zone.

Bradley County Schools officials say Goode worked for ABM Industries, and was only assigned to Charleston Elementary.

A statement from the school district says they contacted ABM after learning of the accusations against Goode, and ABM immediately fired him.
