Goochland County Treasurer Charged with Embezzlement

February 4, 2011

Goochland County's treasurer has been charged with one count of embezzlement.

Sheriff James L. Agnew announced the arrest of Brenda S. Grubbs Thursday.

The sheriff's office says Wachovia Bank investigators contacted the office January 24 to report unusual transactions with a county account. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the sheriff's office requested a state police investigation.

According to the sheriff's office, the state probe had not yet begun when the county administrator called and said Grubbs had attempted to withdraw a large amount of cash from a Wachovia account around noon Wednesday. Agnew charged Grubbs later that day.

It was unclear whether Grubbs has hired an attorney.
