A former prison inmate and convicted pedophile was arrested late Monday after beginning employment as a security guard for a municipal daycare center in Petah Tikva.

The guard, 35, only managed to work two shifts at his new workplace before his new job was deemed inappropriate by a parole case officer from the Prison Service.

A police investigation determined that no child in the center had been victimized by the convicted pedophile before the discovery of his criminal past.  At the moment, it has yet to be determined how the guard was hired by the private security company, "Reshet Bitahon," that provides guards to the day care center, without running a proper background check.
