Missouri mayor, 80, accused of stealing from town account

NEOSHO, Mo. The mayor and treasurer of a tiny southwest Missouri town is accused of writing checks on a village account for more than $9,000 worth of personal expenses.

The Joplin Globe reports Jimmy Brown, 80, of Redings Mill was charged Tuesday with felony theft/stealing in Newton County Circuit Court.

Sheriff Ken Copeland says members of the Redings Mill village board contacted his department in July about missing funds. He says the investigation indicates Brown used the money to pay for things like dentist bills, utilities and other personal expenses.
