A hearing has been set for a west Alabama mayor facing theft allegations.

The Greene County Clerk confirms Forkland Mayor Derrick Biggs has a hearing set for September 16 in district court.

Last month, a supervisor in Forkland's Water Department signed a warrant for Biggs' arrest.

Alonzo Thomas accused Mayor Biggs of stealing more than $6,000 from the department.

Biggs turned himself in to police the following week.
