COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a former recreation director and recreation specialist in Columbus have been indicted on seven counts related to a police investigation that led to their arrests last year.

Court records show that former Columbus Parks and Recreation Director Tony Adams and recreation program specialist Herman Porter were indicted on three counts of conspiracy to defraud a political subdivision and two counts each of theft and first-degree forgery.

A third suspect, William Fox, who operated a nonprofit basketball leage, was indicted on two counts of conspiracy to defraud a political subdivision and one theft count.

Adams, Porter and Fox are charged in connection with what police
call the misappropriation of more than $200,000 for the Nike-sponsored city youth basketball team.
