Mayor Charged with Stealing Toys for Tots' Money; Greenbrier, TN Mayor Billy Wilson Nabbed by TBI

Workers at Greenbrier, Tennessee city hall were shocked this week to see the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) arrest the mayor on charges that he stole money from the Toys for Tots charity just before the Christmas season, the Raw Story website reports today (November 6, 2013).

TBI agents abruptly showed up on November 4 to take Greenbrier Mayor Billy Wilson into custody.

Wilson -- who also serves as the city's fire chief -- was charged with official misconduct and theft of  $60,000 from Toys for Tots -- a charity that provides toys to poor children and helps families pay bills during the holiday season.

Agents began investigating Wilson early last month, TBI spokesperson Kristen Helm said.
