A high school teacher in Henderson charged with counts of luring a child admitted to being romantically involved with one of her students, police stated in an arrest report.

Amanda Brennan, 24, was arrested Friday on two counts of luring a child and a count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to a Las Vegas Metro police arrest report.

According to police, the parents of a male student at Foothill High School accused the English teacher of suspicious activity with their son.

In the arrest report, the parents' suspicions were raised when Brennan picked up the boy at their gated neighborhood on Wednesday. The parents, as police were told in the report, did not know Brennan was coming to see the teen and denied permission for the boy to go out with her. Still, the boy and Brennan left together from the neighborhood, according to the report.

Police also stated in the report Brennan returned the boy home past curfew.

Detectives were also looking into the boy's mobile phone records, which showed about 1,000 text messages between him and a number belonging to Brennan on May 1-9, according to the arrest report.

"We used a variety of different information and sources to determine that a crime was committed. At this point I won't detail those messages what they are due to the fact they are in the justice system," said Captain Mitch MaCiszak with the Clark County School Police Department.

Police, in the report, visited the boy at the school on Friday. It was then, in the report, the boy admitted Brennan picked him up at his home two days before despite his parents denying him permission to go out with her.

The boy, in the report, also admitted to a romantic relationship between him and Brennan. He told police in the report they loved each other and there were only two times they kissed.

The boy told police, in the report, that the two only cuddled in the back of her vehicle on the night he was denied permission to go out.

Police, in the report, then interviewed Brennan and admitted that she loved the teen and knew the relationship was wrong.

Brennan, in the report, confessed to another time when he picked up the teen without his parents' permission. In that instant, she said to police in the report, they sat in the front seat of her vehicle and kissed.

Brennan was booked into Clark County Detention Center on $20,000 bail, according to jail records.
