SE Mo. mayor charged with misdemeanor shoplifting


A small-town southeast Missouri mayor has been charged with misdemeanor shoplifting from a Wal-Mart in Cape Girardeau.


Morley Mayor Jonathan McNeely was cited at 7 p.m. Saturday after store security told police McNeely concealed several hunting and fishing items in a shopping cart with a coat before leaving the store without paying for them.


The Southeast Missourian reports McNeely's attorney, Bryan Greaser, issued a statement Monday afternoon saying McNeely was cooperating with authorities and hopes to resolve the matter soon.


The 28-year-old was elected mayor of the Scott County town of about 700 in April 2012 after previously serving on the board of aldermen.


McNeely will have a February date set to appear in municipal court.
