CENTER, TX (KTRE) - A Shelby County Grand Jury has indicted an county auditor for revealing competitive bids to an individual.

Tracy Strong was formally charged Feb. 3 for misuse of official information. She was arrested Tuesday morning and immediately paid a $1,000 bond. She returned to work that day.

According to the indictment, Strong let a bidder for a 911 addressing system know she was the winner of the sealed bid before the bids were officially opened by the commissioners court.

Strong declined to comment on the indictment.
