• Mom who took son, cut off GPS monitor extradited to Fla.


    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - A Seminole County woman, who was arrested in North Carolina after cutting off her GPS ankle monitor and fleeing with her 11-year-old son, was extradited to Florida Thursday morning, officers said.

    Angela Darden, 45, was booked into the Seminole County Jail. She was arrested in Elizabeth City, N.C. on August 29, officials said.

    Darden is scheduled to face a judge Thursday.

    Investigators said Darden took the boy out of a Seminole County school in August.

    The school was not supposed to let Howard Darden go with his mother because his father filed paperwork with the school showing he had full custody.

    WFTV found out that the front desk worker who released Howard to his mother has been reassigned.

    The boy and his mother were later found in North Carolina. Angela Darden was found inside a mall. Howard Darden was found inside the car in the parking lot, uninjured and in good health.

    Investigators said Angela Darden was on GPS monitoring for an aggravated stalking incident involving the child's father.
