According to the Sheriff Office, Mayor Harris is arrested for taking $80 from the city.

Chief Investigator Tim Watkins said, "Ms. Harris admitted to taking the cash. She stated she was using it for city purpose because she was about to go on a retreat and she took that money just in case the city's credit card did not work."

It all happened when an intern told Meigs police that there was money missing. According to the Sheriff Office the money was removed from water payments which belongs to the city. 

The illegal actions didn't stop just there. Investigators said Mayor Harris removed the surveillance cameras from City Hall.

Chief Investigator Tim Watkins said,"There was a company who showed up on the 21st who removed the surveillance cameras from the city hall itself at the mayors request."

According to the judge Mayor Harris is arrested with the misdemeanor of criminal interference of government property. She is also charged with violation of her oath of office which is a felony.
