Former Child Care Owners Arrested

Two former child care owners have been arrested and are facing grand theft charges arising from failure to conduct employee background checks.

The couple is accused of getting more than half a million dollars they should have never received.

Now under arrest, Kenneth and Marie Bryant, owners of  Noah's Ark Christian Academy, did not do proper background checks on all their employees and therefore were never entitled to receive $526,586.30 from the Early Learning Coalition.
The investigation began in October 2011 and the owners closed the center voluntarily in October 2012.
The Bryants were arrested in July 2013.
Records show only 22 out of 37 employees had Level 2 background screenings. Additionally, one employee had never been screened, one was not screened upon re-employment, and 13 employees were not screened within the mandated time period.
The Early Learning Coalition's C.E.O., Matt Guse, says, "Every dollar that we spend in these programs are taxpayers' dollars. We have a responsibility as a coalition to make sure that taxpayers' dollars are being used the way they're intended to be used."
