Child Protective Services took custody of four Napa children Friday after their mother and her boyfriend were arrested on suspicion of drug-related and other charges, police said.

Around 4:20 p.m. Friday, officers went to a home in the 1600 block of E Street to contact 45-year-old Socorro Garcia, check the welfare of her four children and speak with her about their truancy, police said. On their arrival, Garcia allegedly hid a methamphetamine pipe in a drawer, according to police.

Garcia and her boyfriend, Michael Leo Mount, 40, were allegedly under the influence of a controlled substance and Garcia gave officers permission to search the home, police said. A search allegedly revealed scales, packaging material and suspected methamphetamine.

Garcia was arrested on suspicion of child endangerment, meth possession, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and drug paraphernalia possession, according to the Napa jail booking report. Mount was arrested on suspicion of possessing meth, according to the booking report.
