HARTSHORNE, Okla. (AP) – Authorities have issued subpoenas for records of the use of a city of Hartshorne credit card.

The McAlester News-Capital reports  that GM Financial, Honda Financial, Bass Pro Shops, Billmcredit-cards-300x225atrix, Vivid Seats, AT&T, DirecTV, Wells Fargo, US Cellular and Progressive Insurance are listed as being issued subpoenas from Oct. 6 through Oct. 13.

District Attorney Chuck Sullivan said the subpoenas are a request for documents, but declined further comment.

The credit card was issued in the name of former City Clerk Dawn Dunkin. Dunkin and City Treasurer Shirley Day recently retired and Mayor Carolyn Trueblood resigned in September. None could be reached for comment.

City Attorney Richard Lerblance said the state Auditor and Inspector is preparing to audit the city and he believes the FBI is investigating. The FBI declined comment.
