FAYETTE, Ala. (AP) - The former manager of Fayette’s water board is accused of spending more than $25,000 in public money on lingerie, strippers, gun parts and other purchases.

Al.com (https://bit.ly/1RoW2Ld ) reports 54-year-old Scotty Moore was recently indicted on 34 felony charges accusing him of misusing public money, including first-degree theft by deception.

Prosecutors said Moore used a board-issued credit card on a variety of purchases, including more than $10,000 at strip clubs in New Orleans, Dothan and Birmingham.

He’s also accused of spending more than $2,500 on lingerie, ladies’ jackets, sweaters, high-heel boots, other clothing items and gun parts.

Moore was released from jail after paying an $180,000 bond. He did not return a message seeking comment.

District Attorney Chris McCool said that the arrest was the result of a months-long investigation.
