WILTON, Conn. (AP) - A dean of students at a New York City high school has been charged with drug possession in Connecticut and suspended from his job.

Wilton police say an officer arrested 35-year-old Nicholas deSpoelberch of Darien, Conn., on July 11 after finding him asleep in his car. Officers say they found suspected heroin, syringes and spoons in the vehicle.

deSpoelberch is dean of students at Regis High School, a private all-boys Jesuit school in Manhattan's Upper East Side. The school announced this week that deSpoelberch has been suspended pending further investigation.

deSpoelberch posted $2,500 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned in Norwalk Superior Court on July 22.

deSpoelberch couldn't be reached for comment Thursday. There is no phone listing for him. It's not clear if he has a lawyer.
