They said Friday the man engaged a colleague, who taught physics at school, to help find customers. They say the two sold about 1.3 kilograms (2.9 pounds) of the drug on six separate occasions in St. Petersburg before being apprehended earlier this year.

The suspects have been put in custody pending a trial. They face a 20-year sentence if convicted.
