River Valley High student in pot brownie case released from jail
A River Valley High School student has been released from jail, four days after she was arrested and accused of using classmates to sell marijuana brownies.
Saira Munoz, 18, was released Tuesday from the Sutter County Jail without charges being filed.
The Sutter County District Attorney's Office said additional investigation was needed before determining whether to charge the high school senior in Sutter County Superior Court.
Munoz was arrested Friday at the school after police said a female student became sick and was hospitalized after eating a marijuana-laced brownie.
The student was taken to Rideout Memorial Hospital as a precaution and no long-term health effects were expected, police said.
A 15-year-old male student was also cited in connection with the distribution of illicit baked goods, police said.
Munoz was booked into the Sutter County Jail on suspicion of employing a minor to sell marijuana, a felony.
It's not clear what actions, if any, the school district has taken. School district officials did not return phone calls on Wednesday seeking comment.
