(Ogden-AP) -- A constable is charged with two third-degree felonies for allegedly billing the city of Ogden for warrants he never served.

Paul Larsen is scheduled to be arraigned April 13 in 2nd District Court on charges of theft by deception and communications fraud.

Officials say the billings involved several thousand dollars in fees for warrants served over the past year or two.

A police detective noticed the irregularities when he saw that Larsen was billing the city for warrants the detective had served.

Larsen was appointed constable several years ago by the City Council.

He also serves papers all over Weber County and occasionally in Davis County.
