Monticello mayor arrested

Times Herald-Record has the story: Mayor Gordon Jenkins and Rochelle Massey were arrested yesterday afternoon and charged with selling counterfeit goods, weapons possession and marijuana possession. Allegedly.

"How you doing?" Jenkins said to a reporter as he was taken to his arraignment.

He yelled to a photographer in the parking lot that he was doing well and implied the arrest was political. "You know there is an election coming up," he said.
