FORT DODGE, Iowa – A former co-director of a landfill faces up to 10 years in jail after he allegedly used state resources for a personal project.

The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation arrested Michael Grell Tuesday for theft by misappropriation.

Grell is being held in the Webster County jail. Along with a jail sentence, he faces a fine of up to $10,000.
