FRONTENAC, Kan. (AP) — Court records say a former southeast Kansas city administrator spent taxpayer money on GPS devices and monitoring services that he used to track his former mistress.

The new details about Doug Sellars were included in the arrest affidavit that the Pittsburg Morning Sun obtained. Sellars is charged with official misconduct, misdemeanor stalking and three other felonies.

The affidavit alleges that Sellars embezzled $8,000, spending some of it on the GPS devices that he hid inside his former mistress’ car bumper.

Sellars began working as the Frontenac city clerk in 2004 after more than a decade with the city’s police department. He was appointed interim city manager in 2014. Sellars resigned from both positions in 2015.

A woman who answered the phone at his home hung up after declining to comment.
