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.
