According to reports, Former Stockton California Mayor Anthony Silva has been arrested in San Francisco.
KCRA Reported: Silva was returning from a vacation in 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.
Silva left for vacation to the South American country on Wednesday, the day before the arrest warrant was issued.
“This was just taking advantage of an opportunity, from what I understand, to go on vacation,” Sawyer said on Thursday.
The arrest warrant was issued the same day 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, formerly known as the Boys and Girls Club. Silva used to run the Boys and Girls Club.
Sawyer said Silva’s arrest is about financial matters and is not related to his arrest in Amador County last year.
