BRENTWOOD, Md. (AP) — Council members in a Maryland town are investigating debit card charges made by the mayor and treasurer of Brentwood.

Councilwoman Marlene Robinson says more than 50 “questionable” charges have been made since January without notifying the council. Robinson says the charges include a $2,400 personal cell phone bill
and a $323 plane ticket to Alabama.

The town hasn’t released a line-item list of the charges. The council has canceled the debit card.

Town clerk Melora Anderson says Mayor Xzavier Montgomery-Wright is out of the country until Tuesday. The Washington Examiner reports no criminal charges have been filed against the mayor.

The town council is split over whether to conduct an internal audit or pay for an external audit, so the town will conduct an internal audit.
