SOUTHAVEN, MS- (WMC-TV) – Southaven Mayor Greg Davis bonded out of the DeSoto County Jail Tuesday afternoon after being charged with two counts of embezzlement by a public official and one count of false pretenses.
Davis was indicted by a grand jury in DeSoto County.
"This investigation is ongoing. It is not by any stretch of the imagination finished," said DeSoto County District Attorney John Champion. "This is just the beginning of what I for see to be a long process of fishing up the investigations and then taking things to various courts and grand juries for decisions."
According to the indictment, one of the embezzlement charges stems from Davis purchasing a vehicle leased by the City of Southaven without proper "authority to conduct the transaction".
