TBI: Tennessee Mayor Stole $250,000 From His Granny


Grandmothers tell you stories, give you crisp $10 bills directly from the bank in your birthday cards, and hand you hard candies from the bottom of their purse. So why would someone steal a quarter million dollars from their grandma?

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation will presumably tell us why after they arrested Mount Carmel, TN Mayor Christopher Jones. They started investigating him for theft last August. They allege he wrote checks to himself from his grandmother’s account that amount to around $300,000. They say those checks were for fake reimbursements.

He's in the Hawkins County Jail on a $300,000 bond.
