Local official arrested, faces felony charges

Law enforcement arrested former Precinct 1 Commissioner Timothy Neuman July 19 on charges of felony fraud and evidence tampering related to recycled metal funds, local media reports.
Neuman, who resigned July 10, citing “personal reasons,” faces charges of misapplication of fiduciary property between $2,500 and $30,000, a state jail felony, and a third-degree felony charge of tampering with evidence, according to KSAT News.
Both Medina County Assistant Criminal District Attorney Margaret Swyers and a representative of the Texas Rangers confirmed to the Devine News that Neuman was under investigation last week.
