A source revealed a troubling development as an assistant principal at Del Webb Middle School, Howard Hughes, was apprehended in Texas on Friday. Court records unveiled an active arrest warrant against Hughes, citing three counts of contacting or attempting to contact a minor by a person of authority for sex.

Law enforcement sources disclosed that authorities attempted to arrest Hughes at his residence on Wednesday, only to discover that he had absconded to Texas. U.S. Marshals successfully apprehended him on Friday afternoon amid concerns that he might attempt to flee across the border into Mexico.

Before his arrest, Hughes was placed on involuntary suspension, leading to the removal of his biography and photo from Del Webb’s website. The school in Henderson now grapples with the repercussions of this distressing incident involving one of its staff members.

Hughes’s arrest adds to a string of troubling events within the Clark County School District, marking the fifth instance this week where a staff member has been incarcerated. This arrest comes in the wake of a new law implemented in October, which has strengthened regulations concerning the luring of minors.

According to information from his biography, Hughes embarked on a career in the education sector in 2002. The community and authorities are left reeling from these revelations, emphasizing the critical importance of ensuring a safe and secure environment for all students within educational institutions.
