KILGORE, TX (KLTV) - Kilgore police arrested a former Longview city councilman on Monday on a theft warrant.

Thomas "Tommy" Finklea, 44, of Kilgore was arrested and charged with theft of property between $1,500 and $20,000. The warrant for his arrest was issued by Justice of the Peace B.H. Jameson stemming from a December 17, 2013 incident.

“I wrote some checks I couldn’t cover. I apologize to my friends and family, and to the people of district 6 who I represented," Finklea told KLTV.

Finklea was arrested on a similar charge in September 2013 by Longview police.

Finklea was released Monday after posting a $5,000 bond.
