PURVIS, Miss. (AP) - A Hattiesburg bail bond agent has been arrested on charges he stole more than $30,000 from his employer.

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood’s office said Friday that 56-year-old Allan Humphrey surrendered to authorities on Thursday. He was indicted on April 5 by a Lamar County grand jury on two felony counts of theft. The indictment says Humphrey stole the money in 2014 and 2015.

It’s unclear if Humphrey has a lawyer.

Hood says Humphrey wrote $875,000 in bonds and pocketed the money instead of passing it on to Mississippi Bonding Co. He faces up to 30 years in prison and fines of $50,000 if convicted of the charges.

Humphrey’s bail was set at $45,000. Online jail records show he has been released from the Lamar County jail.
