— Police on Monday arrested a former Kinston High School teacher on a charge that she took money for a planned field trip and used them on personal expenses.

Amanda Ann Grady, 32, of 330 Martha Drive, was charged with obtaining property by false pretense.

Lenoir County Schools last month asked police to investigate the disappearance of $1,450 that Kinston High students had paid for a field trip.
