BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A Bay City commissioner who says he was trying to clean up the yard of a blighted home now is facing a misdemeanor charge.

The Bay City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1HucGHf ) Chad Sibley was arraigned this month on larceny of $200 or less, which is punishable by up to 93 days in jail and a fine of $500 or three times the value of the property.

Police reports say Jeana L. Wolcott told officers in April she recently lost ownership of her home due to unpaid property taxes and said she had until July to get out. She told police that a lawn mower and grill were missing from her backyard.

Sibley told police he took the grill and broken mower to the curb. Trash pickers apparently took them away.
