JASPER, Texas (AP) — The director of an East Texas bass fishing tournament has been charged with theft after cash prizes allegedly were not paid.

Jasper County jail records show 44-year-old Michael Shane McCloud was being held without bond Thursday on a charge of theft of property. Jail records don’t list an attorney for McCloud, whose arrest was announced Wednesday by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

A Jasper County grand jury indicted McCloud in the theft investigation related to the 2012 Big Bass Mania tournament on Lake Sam Rayburn.

Game wardens in Texas arrested McCloud with assistance from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers. Investigators say McCloud formerly was from the Bryan-College Station area but also lived in Florida. No hometown for him was immediately provided by law officers.
