By The Associated Press

KENNETT, Mo. (AP) ' A preliminary hearing will be Monday for a southeast Missouri police chief accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the city criminal investigation fund.

The Kennett Daily Dunklin Democrat ( ) reports that Caruthersville chief Chris Riggs faces 24 counts of forgery and one count of stealing. Another city employee, Marcus Hopkins, faces 11 counts of forgery.

Authorities say Riggs wrote checks to Hopkins out of the fund over a two-year period ending in August, then forged Hopkins' signature to cash the checks. Both men were arrested in October following an investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. Both are free on $200,000 bond. Attorneys for both men were not listed.
