— After being arrested in 2008 for meth manufacturing in Cullman and indicted in 2009, a Tennessee woman who has been on the lam ever since was located and taken to the Cullman County Detention Center on Wednesday and is now awaiting trial.

Angela Denise Denton, 33, of Tennessee, was arrested in Selmer, Tennessee,  after the Sheriff’s office there ran across a Cullman County warrant on her following an arrest. Cullman Narcotics Enforcement Team (CNET) Director Joey Cone said she was picked up earlier this week by Cullman County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

“She waved extradition and is now in jail,” Cone said. “She initially made bond following the arrest in 2008 and left the state. She never returned for court dates and in 2009 when the indictment was issued. She couldn’t be found.”

Denton was staying in Cullman at the time of her unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance arrest, but had a Tennessee address.

Cone said he is unaware of her bond at this time.
