Rockwood's former public works director Tom Pierce was charged Wednesday in a multi-count indictment that includes theft, official misconduct and unauthorized use of credit cards.
An addendum to the Roane County Grand Jury Report said auditor Phillip Job of the State Comptroller's Office conducted an investigative audit of the Rockwood City Parks and Recreation Department at the request of Rockwood Mayor James Watts and the District Attorney General.
The state's Comptroller's Office is expected to publish the full investigative report on its website once Pierce is in custody, according to information from District Attorney General Russell Johnson.
Officials said Pierce is expected to turn himself in to the Roane County Jail Thursday.
