Anthony mayor bonded from jail after arrest
ANTHONY, Texas — Anthony Texas Mayor Art Franco has bonded out of jail after being arrested Friday by the Texas Rangers.
The long-time Anthony mayor and resident was arrested at city hall charged with tampering with evidence, according to court records.
The indictment stems from an investigation into alleged fraudulent use of information to secure government-assisted housing.
Franco said Saturday over the phone he cannot comment on the investigation but wanted to assure residents it will not affect the town.
