The Yakima County Sheriff's office continues searching for information and people to speak with concerning a Toppenish High Assistant Principal as well as an English teacher who authorities say may have sold drugs and alcohol to students in the Toppenish School District.
If you attended a party with John and Bertha Cerna call the sheriff
Detectives say they're still looking at all allegations of including "underage students being at parties hosted by John and Bertha Cerna where students may have been provided alcohol, drugs, and sexual encounters."
Both John and Bertha Cerna remain on paid administrative leave as the investigation continues.
Authorities are investigating no charges have been filed
Detectives are looking for anyone who may have attended any of the parties no matter the time frame. In other words it could have been years ago that you attended a party. That's okay authorities say they still want to speak with you. A post on the Yakima County Sheriff's Office Facebook page says "our interest is in obtaining the truth in the allegations to see if criminal charges are appropriate for the Cerna’s. Please call our office at (509)574-2500. You will encounter our phone tree. Press option 3, and then option 1.
Authorities say if you attended such a party detectives simply want to speak with you. They say no one offering information will be charged with a crime so they say there's no reason why you shouldn't call if you have information to offer that could help local authorities.
