A former Mertzon city official was arrested Tuesday by Texas Rangers on charges of theft and official oppression after allegedly stealing a city vehicle motor and making unwelcome sexual comments to a secretary, authorities said.

Clayvorn James Rose, 69, was booked into the Tom Green County Jail without incident, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).

He was released Wednesday on a $25,000 bond, records revealed.

The Mertzon City Council held an emergency meeting Thursday and voted to fire Rose as the city operations manager.
