Teacher accused of giving cocaine and alcohol to a minor in Bartlesville

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. — A former Bartlesville High School teacher is facing several charges after he allegedly supplied alcohol and drugs to at least one minor, according to court documents.

Trey Cabler gave cocaine to a minor near Central Middle School and St. John’s Middle School last March, court records show.

He also gave the high school student, who was 17 years old at the time, several alcoholic drinks on at least two occasions, prosecutors allege.

According to state records, Cabler received his teaching certificate in 2018.

Cabler appeared in court on Tuesday and plead not guilty. His bond was set at $50,000 and was asked to have no contact with any former Bartlesville High School students.
