PELHAM, GA (WALB) - A Mitchell county man is out of jail on bond after police said he used a stolen, city-issued gas card for multiple transactions.

Jordan Knight, 19, is charged with 23 counts of felony financial transaction card fraud and entering auto.

Knight was a former city of Pelham employee.

Investigators said Knight broke into a city vehicle, stole the car's gas card, and used it all around town.

"He just said he was low on money. I mean, that was the excuse,"  said Pelham Police Investigator Adam Lamb.

Knight has since bonded out.

Investigator Lamb said more charges are pending.
