SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Former Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva has been arrested at the San Francisco International Airport, where he arrived from a vacation in South America.
The former mayor was arrested Sunday as he returned from Colombia.
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.
Sawyer says Silva left for 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.
