FOX: A former California mayor was arrested Sunday at the San Francisco International Airport, where he arrived from a vacation in South America, his attorney said.
Anthony Silva, the former mayor of Stockton, was arrested while he was returning from a trip to Colombia, his attorney, Allen Sawyer, told KCRA-TV.
An arrest warrant was issued for Silva on Thursday on charges of profiteering, embezzlement, misappropriation of public funds and grand theft, among other charges. He will face the charges in San Joaquin County.
Silva left for his vacation on Wednesday, a day before FBI agents and investigators from the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office served search warrants at Silva’s home and the Stockton Kids Club, which Silva used to run when it was known as the Boys and Girls Club.
