Marcela Jimenez Scott, 54, was booked into the Jim Wells County jail Tuesday on six counts of tampering with government documents.


Scott, a former law enforcement officer for the Premont Police Department, turned herself into authorities.


According to Jim Wells County District Attorney Carlos Garcia, the cases stem from when Scott was the interim police chief with Premont PD.


Scott was released the same day on total bond of $6,000.
