Former City Clerk in Southeast Kansas Faces Felony Charges

KSAL StaffSeptember 6, 2016

A former city clerk in southeast Kansas has been charged with misusing public funds and several other felonies.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports that Doug Sellars, of Frontenac, was arrested Friday morning. Other felonies he is facing include official misconduct and theft. He has been released on $10,000 bond. His attorney, Rick Smith, declined to comment.

Sellars began working as the Frontenac city clerk in 2004 after more than a decade with the city’s police department. He was appointed interim city manager in 2014. Sellars abruptly resigned from both positions August 2015.

Authorities say the alleged misconduct occurred in 2014 and 2015. The allegations include that he purchased about $8,100 of “personal merchandise” with city dollars.

The charges follow a Kansas Bureau of Investigation probe.
