By Anita Creamer


A 38-year-old Rocklin middle school teacher was arrested Friday after a parent complained to a school resource officer that the teacher had allegedly given students marijuana and alcohol, authorities said.

The teacher, Ian Runciman, works as an eighth-grade math teacher at Granite Oaks Middle School. The alleged incidents occurred both on campus and at the teacher's Roseville apartment and involved several students, according to officials.

Runciman was arrested on suspicion of supplying marijuana to a juvenile and booked into Placer County Jail today.

Rocklin police continue the investigation and request that anyone with information call the department at (916) 625-5443.
