Nampa police are investigating the possibility Canyon County Head Start director Alice Reyes, accused of mishandling federal funds, was set up.
But that has not taken the focus away from a regional office report that cited many concerns with the program, 3rd District Judge Sergio Gutierrez said Tuesday. Gutierrez is a member of the Head Start board.
Information was turned over to police on Wednesday.
An anonymous caller contacted Gutierrez and Reyes last week and claimed a Head Start employee framed Reyes over a long period of time. The ruse allegedly dates back to a November break-in at the Treasure Valley Transit office in Nampa, Gutierrez said.
The judge said he has received several anonymous calls since the issue first surfaced, but the caller seemed to know a lot.Gutierrez said program materials are accessible and there could have been opportunity for mishandling. The board will look into solving that, he said.
