Southaven, MS (abc24.com) - The Southaven Board of Aldermen could meet as early as Thursday to discuss the fate of Mayor Greg Davis, now that Davis is the subject of a criminal investigation, one alderman said Tuesday night.
"I wasn't completely shocked about it, but it is definitely unnerving." said Greg Guy, Southaven Mayor Pro Tempore.
On Wednesday, the Mississippi State Auditor's office said it recently met with local and federal investigators and planned to pursue criminal charges against Mayor Davis.
"I can now confirm State Auditor Stacey Pickering has met with the Northern District United States Attorney, FBI and the local district attorney, and the criminal investigation is moving forward." said Lisa Shoemaker, with the auditors office.
"Auditor Pickering has shared documents with these agencies." she added.
Davis was facing a December 2nd deadline to pay the auditor's office with more than $170,000 related to questionable spending.
The auditor's office says it was told that the Mayor had mailed a check, but Mayor Davis says he will actually hand deliver the money on either Friday or Monday.
Meanwhile, Guy says he recently received a thick packet from the auditor's office full of invoices and receipts to check out related to the auditor's investigation.
"They want us to try and validate as much as possible, if we are familiar with any of the events that took place or, if we were present at any of those events." said Guy.
Guy says he's talked with several alderman and they hope to have a special called meeting as early as Thursday to discuss the Mayor and the criminal investigation.
"I don't know what all this investigation is going to entail, I don't know how it is going to effect him, like I said, hopefully we will get together and make some decisions tomorrow." Guy said Wednesday night.
