January 16, 2002|By Lisa Goldberg | Lisa Goldberg,SUN STAFF

A former Howard County schoolteacher who eluded capture for 10 months after he failed to report to jail for a conviction stemming from an offense involving a 15-year-old boy was arrested yesterday afternoon at a Rehoboth Beach, Del., hotel, authorities said.

Members of the Baltimore-based FBI fugitive task force found Klaude Krannebitter, 38, working behind the counter at the Quality Inn and Suites on Coastal Highway about 1:30 p.m., authorities said.

Krannebitter, who resigned from his job at Glenwood Middle School in 1999 after he was accused of paying a 15-year-old Baltimore boy to perform sex acts, was being held last night at the Delaware State Police barracks in Lewes, said a state police official.
