ODESSA – A woman is behind bars on four counts of endangering a child.
Odessa Police tell NewsWest 9, they were called out to the 3700 block of Dawn on Tuesday in reference to a welfare check.
Dispatch reported that a juvenile, later identified as a eight year old White male, was found in the parking lot of Permian High School.
