GARLAND CITY, AR (KSLA) - A south Arkansas mayor will go to court this week on charges she stole a city check and tried to spend it at a Wal-Mart.

Garland City Mayor Yvonne Dockery is accused of felony theft. She says she was merely trying to cash her payroll check.

However checks issued by Garland City must be signed by council members before they can be cashed. Authorities say Dockery's check for $732.05 did not have those signatures when she tried to cash it.

Her arraignment is set for Tuesday in Miller County Circuit Court.
