Texarkana police say the mayor of Garland City has been arrested for allegedly stealing a municipal check and trying to spend it at a Wal-Mart store.
Police spokeswoman Kristi Mitchell says Mayor Yvonne Dockery faces a felony theft charge. Dockery was arrested Wednesday in Shreveport, La., and was being held in the Caddo Parrish jail for extradition back to Arkansas.
Mitchell said the check Dockery allegedly stole was worth about $600.
Previously, Arkansas State Police troopers and the FBI investigated Dockery and other current and former city officials over embezzlement allegations. The city also faced a $191,108 delinquent tax bill from the Internal Revenue Service.
