3 charged in Texas co-op credit card abuse


JOHNSON CITY, Texas (AP) — An ex-police officer, his wife and her former boss have been arrested after more than $50,000 in unauthorized purchases were made on a Central Texas co-op’s credit cards.

The two women worked for Pedernales Electric Cooperative but were fired amid the investigation.

A grand jury indicted Bryan Geeslin, Jeanny Geeslin and Zelenny Martinez on charges of organized criminal activity. All were arrested Tuesday. Online jail records do not list attorneys for the trio, who were no longer incarcerated Saturday.

Martinez is a former information technology manager at PEC. Jeanny Geeslin was her assistant. Johnson City police say the women made more than $50,000 in unauthorized transactions, including electronic equipment.

Bryan Geeslin formerly was a captain with the Johnson City Police Department.
