The principal of a private school in Marin County was found in a motel room with a younger woman and drugs Friday, according to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

According to Sheriff’s deputies, the boyfriend of 21-year-old Brittney Hall called police out of concern that she was at a motel with an older man giving her drugs.

When Rancho Cordova Police showed up at the Hyatt Place, officers say they immediately found Hall passed out on the bed.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, Thomas Price, the principal of the Branson School in Marin County, told officers that Hall was fine.

Investigators say cocaine, meth and heroin were all found in the room.

Price and Hall were arrested for possession of narcotics, possession of meth and possession of meth for sale.

Price bailed out the next day, while Hall remains in custody.

A staff list on the Branson School website no longer displays Price’s name.
