Man Wanted By Interpol Given Job As A Guard In A U.S. Prison

October 21, 2009

Nebraska (ChattahyBox) – A man who was wanted in the Czech Republic has been captured after it was found that he had gotten a job in a Nebraska prison as a guard.

Michal Preclik, a 32-year-old man from Nachod, Czech Republic, was wanted for felony charges of drug possession and fraud.

However, this didn’t come up on the two background checks that were run at the time of his employment, or a month later. This allowed him to slip under the radar, and maintain his job for almost a year.

It was not until he was promoted that the mistake was caught, and he was arrested at his job.

“This is just unbelievable that the state of Nebraska is hiring international criminals. Who’s minding the store?” Senator Heath Mello commented.

The whole story is made more shocking by the fact that a simple Google search of Preclik’s name brings up his page on Interpol’s Wanted list.

He is now set to be sent back to the Czech Republic, but has contended the decision, as he is now an American citizen by marriage, and believed the charges against him are false.

He denies having any ties with organized crime in his home country.
