A Kellyton Town Council member was arrested earlier this month on a theft charge unrelated to the town.
George Camp, 74 years old, of Kellyton, also serves as mayor pro tem with the Town Council. He was arrested by the Alexander City Police Department on a first-degree theft of property charge following an investigation alleging that he stole from the Alexander City Elks Lodge.
According to reports, Camp’s alleged theft was of $24,367.11 from the lodge. He was arrested on January 3 and held in custody at the Tallapoosa County Jail.
Camp’s bond was set at $10,000. He has since been released on bond to await trial.
According to the Code of Alabama, theft of property in the first degree is a Class B felony. If found guilty and convicted of that charge, the sentence for a Class B felony is a term of imprisonment between two and 20 years.
