Both were released after posting $1,000, 10 percent, of their $10,000 bond. If convicted, they could face up to three years on each D felony.
“It’s an unfortunate and unexpected situation,” said Tyler Moore, president of the Howard County Commissioners of the arrest.
Moore said commissioners elected not to reappoint Reed as supervisor and Donnell was released from her duties due to the investigation. The decisions were made during the commissioners’ weekly meeting Tuesday.
Sheriff Steve Rodgers said the investigation is ongoing. The total cost of the items the two charged to the county was not included in the court documents.
