Waveland's mayor on trial Tuesday, Faces embezzlement charges

BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - The embezzlement trial of Waveland Mayor Tommy Longo is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Hancock County Circuit Court in Bay St. Louis.

The Sea Coast Echo reports that on Friday, Circuit Judge John Gargiulo denied a defense motion to quash the indictment.

Mayor Longo was arrested on Jan. 22 on charges that he allegedly used his city-issued Fuelman card for his personal vehicle on numerous occasions from around between September 2008 and August 2009.

The total amount involved was $1,116, according to a state auditor's report.
