Authorities in Reeves County arrested Abel Baeza on Tuesday for the crime and was released on bail the next day.

The theft involves a series of checks he wrote that bounced while working for the city.

Those checks include $21,000 that was given to pay the city's auditor and a $3,000 check that Baeza wrote to himself.
