HOUSTON (AP) — Two administrators are no longer with the Houston Independent School District after facing felony drug charges in Alabama.

Prosecutors in Mobile, Ala., say Dana Bost and Ronald Rodriguez had a preliminary hearing Monday on drug possession counts, with bond set at $25,000. Jail records show neither was still in custody Tuesday.

Bost was chief of HISD high schools. Rodriguez was principal of Wheatley High School. Both were hired in July.

District officials Friday learned of the Oct. 18 arrest during a traffic stop near Prichard, Ala. Investigators say marijuana and cocaine were confiscated.

HISD officials on Monday declined to say whether the two were fired or resigned.

Bost, whose annual salary was $171,245, declined comment. Rodriguez made $112,500. No publicly listed phone number could be located for him.
