46-year-old Charles Scott Seale

An Abilene man has been arrested -- accused of under-reporting receipts and sales tax at an Abilene bar.

Investigators said a former employee at Lone Star Bar said 46-year-old Charles Scott Seale instructed them to not ring up payments by customers or to show less than what was actually paid.

Officers said Seale under-reported about $20,000 in receipts and about $1,600 in sales tax.

Jail records show he was released after posting bail Friday, the same day he was arrested. His bond had been set at $5,000.
