Head Start teacher arrested on child endangerment and drug charges

A 33-year-old Head Start Center teacher from Colusa faces charges of child endangerment and drug charges after being found in possession of narcotics while at work.
According to the Williams Police Department, Officer Daniel Mata received information that Belen Marie Muñoz, 33, of Colusa, had active felony warrants from Sutter County and worked at the E Center Head Start, in Williams.
“At approximately 10:00 AM, Officer Mata, along with a Colusa County Deputy responded to the E Center Head Start and arrested Muñoz without incident,” said Williams Police Sgt. Steve Woldanski in a press release.
According to Woldanski, it was discovered Muñoz was in possession of approximately 0.3 grams of methamphetamine along with other paraphernalia.
“The narcotics and paraphernalia were hidden in a backpack kept under an unlocked sink on the school grounds,” said Sgt. Woldanski. “Because the students had access to this sink area, Munoz was arrested for child endangerment, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.”
In addition to being booked into the Colusa County Jail on the outstanding warrants from Sutter County, Muñoz had been charged with child endangerment, the possession of a controlled substance, and for the possession of a controlled substance paraphernalia. Bail was set at $105,000. ■
