SEATTLE -- The board president of the Federal Way school district has been indicted by an Oregon grand jury on seven counts of felony theft.

The Seattle Times reports 49-year-old William Anthony Tony Moore Jr. is accused of stealing more than $150,000 worth of truck tires last year from a tire store based in Portland, Ore.

Moore did not immediately respond to requests for comment Tuesday.

The grand jury handed down its indictment Aug. 23. Moore was arrested last week. He posted bond and was released from the King County Jail while awaiting formal arraignment.

Authorities allege Moore, who owns a used-tire brokerage in Federal Way worked with an employee of GCR Tire Centers in Portland, as part of a scheme to steal more than $150,000 of semitruck tires between March and October 2012.
