You may not believe this but I have been waiting for a story like this for a while.  We have written countless times (including 5 minutes ago) about school systems failing to conduct proper background checks.  It appears Davidson County did something right!  They caught a fugitive looking to work as a teacher with kids in a school.

Newly Hired Davidson Co. Teacher Was a Fugitive

LEXINGTON, N.C. (WGHP) — A woman hired to teach in the Davidson County school system failed a background check and will be returned to Maryland to face criminal charges.

Arlene Denetta Hudson, 42, of High Point was arrested last week after a criminal history check revealed she was wanted by Maryland State Police for stealing a car in September 2005 from a Toyota dealership in Westminster, Md.

School officials notified the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office after Hudson’s background check turned up the criminal charges. A school resource officer then arrested her.
