PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

Four Phenix City employees have been fired for using city-owned materials for personal use.

On November 26, Phenix City Manager Wallace Hunter received complaints of City employees using city-owned equipment on private property and on city time.

The Phenix City Police Department initiated a an internal investigation on the same day and found evidence that several City of Phenix City employees with the Parks and Recreation Department had been using city-owned equipment, materials and supplies for personal gain for some time.

It was also determined that some of these employees had removed Phenix City-owned equipment, materials and supplies from city property to be used on private jobs.

Four employees from the Parks and Recreation Department have been terminated as a result of this investigation. The identity of the terminated employees will not be released, as this is a personal matter that still requires due process.

The investigation has also resulted in the arrest of Jimmy Jackson of Phenix City for theft of property in the second degree.

As this investigation continues, it is possible that there will be additional criminal and administrative charges made against current and former City of Phenix City employees.
