The city of Ivey's water superintendent, Kenneth Helms, was arrested Monday and charged with stealing city money.
That's according to J.T. Ricketson, the agent in charge of the GBI's Milledgeville office.
He said the GBI got involved in the case at the request of Ivey police.
They're still investigating and Ricketson could not say how much money was involved or how it was taken.
Helms is 39 years old, and so far, he faces a single count of theft by taking, a felony.
Ivey is located in Wilkinson County. Its population is just under 1,000.
