SEWCO Theft Trial

Brandon Johnson

Trial is expected to begin today for a former Southeast White County Water Association employee accused of stealing more than $40,000.

27-year old Brandon L. Johnson, of Searcy, is charged with class B felony theft of property.

The former field technician is accused of credit card fraud after an investigation by the Arkansas State Police and Arkansas Legislative Audit Committee. That audit determined Johnson had reportedly received $42,230 in personal credit charges without authorization from January 2011 through April 2016.

Former SEWCO Manager Diana Woodle pled guilty to felony theft charges and was sentenced to seven years in prison in January.
