CLINTON, Tenn. (AP) -- An Anderson County grand jury has indicted the former interim president of a utility district on a felony theft charge.
A charge of theft over $1,000 was returned Dec. 6 against 60-year-old Richard McIntosh. He posted a $25,000 bond and was released from the Anderson County Jail, according to The Knoxville News Sentinel.
McIntosh headed the Powell-Clinch Valley Utility District between May 2010 and February 2011.
A state audit alleged McIntosh used more than $95,000 in utility funds to pay for such personal expenses as an oral surgeon's bill.
The utility district said its own investigation in November found no wrongdoing.
McIntosh remains a vice president of the utility, which is a gas distributor.
Prosecutor Dave Clark said there's an ongoing investigation into district operations.
