Anne Arundel police track down truants
Some Anne Arundel teenagers who decided to skip school last week got a surprise when the police came knocking.
On Friday, officers and school officials teamed up to find students who didn't show up for class at Glen Burnie High School and North County Senior High School.
Police said school officials and neighborhood businesses were concerned that students were skipping school.
Officers tracked down the students and brought them back to the schools. School employees followed up.
Getting the students back in class could help head off more serious problems down the road, police said.
