    A former official at a Fort Worth homeless shelter faces charges that he schemed to steal up to $100,000.

    Dwayne Kenloch was indicted Tuesday by a Tarrant County grand jury. The 49-year-old Kenloch served as chief of operations for the Presbyterian Night Shelter. He is accused of creating fake invoices from a food supplier and having the shelter issue checks to pay them.

    Kenloch is charged with theft and securing execution of documents by deception.

    Tarrant County prosecutors say Kenloch has two prior felony convictions in New York and is subject to Texas' habitual offender law with a third felony conviction. If convicted on either charge, Kenloch could face 25 years to life in prison.

    Kenloch was released on $25,000 bond. His attorney didn't immediately return a phone message.
