An investigation is underway for Mayor Linda Harris of Meigs.

According to an incident report, Harris is accused of taking $80 earlier this year and using the money for a trip.

The Sheriff's Office reported that she was initially taken into custody yesterday after the allegation of misappropriated funds came to light. 

According to deputies, Mayor Harris was released from custody due to a medical condition and the need for a further investigation.

Captain Steve Jones from the Sheriff Department said, "She was arrested by Meigs Police Department but the Sheriff Office wanted to request it and requested her to be released until the investigation could be further."

The investigation is still ongoing and we'll bring you any new information as it comes available.
