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

    Dwayne Kinloch was indicted Tuesday by a Tarrant County grand jury.

    The 49-year-old Kinloch 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.

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

    Tarrant County prosecutors say Kinloch 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.

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