Former Va. Police Chief On Trial for Grand Larceny

September 14, 2010

Brookneal's former acting police chief faces a January trial on a grand larceny charge. The AP reports that a Campbell County grand jury indicted Brian Lee Carr Monday.

Virginia State Police arrested Carr in April after undercover agents turned in a wallet to him as lost. More than $200 in cash was missing when they later claimed the wallet.

Carr became acting police chief when former chief Ricky Cousins resigned earlier this year. Cousins' resignation came a day after he was charged with petit larceny stemming from a shoplifting incident in Lynchburg.

Cousins pleaded guilty in late July to an unrelated misdemeanor theft charge for stealing gas from the town when he was chief.
