West Memphis city official behind bars

A West Memphis, Arkansas city official, who is also a pastor, is behind bars on voyeurism charges.
    
West Memphis Police took Quorum Court Official Jack Moten away in handcuffs. 

They say he committed crimes of voyeurism and video voyeurism against a minor.
    
When police put out a protection order for the girl's safety, they found something else. 

"The officer was entering that protection order into the computer when he also discovered that Jack Moten was wanted in Shelby County, Tennessee on fraud and identity theft charges," said West Memphis Assistant Chief Mike Allen.
    
Police say Moten stole the identity of an elderly man in a nursing home to buy an Escalade from Bud Davis Cadillac in Memphis back in July of 2004. 

The dealership repossessed the Escalade after police say they discovered the identity theft, but Moten was no where to be found until now.
