Andalusia City Worker Arrested in Alleged Gasoline Theft

ANDALUSIA, Ala. (AP) - A city employee in Andalusia has been arrested on ethics law violations and theft charges for allegedly using his position as an equipment operator to obtain more than $2,500 in gasoline.

Attorney General Troy King says Michael Andrew Johnson was arrested on June 16 by Covington County sheriff's deputies and later released on bond.

In a statement Thursday announcing the charges, King declined to release further details. A court clerk said Johnson was released on $50,000 bond and could have an attorney appointed at a July 15 hearing.

A conviction could bring two to 20 years in prison and fines of up to $30,000 for each of the 13 counts charged in the indictment.
