HALEYVILLE - A Haleyville man faces charges on two counts of first degree theft of property for allegedly misappropriating at least $40,000 from the Haleyville Scholarship Foundation and Alumni Foundation.
Jarrod Tyler Hallman was arrested on Thursday, June 18 on the charges of first degree TOP, with the first degree attached to the charges since the value of misappropriated funds was greater than $2,500 according to law.
