COLLINS, Miss. (AP) - The State Auditor’s Office has served a demand letter on the former chief of the Southwest Covington County Volunteer Fire Department for more than $20,000.

Jerry Warren was indicted this past week by a local grand jury on one count of grand larceny. He is free on $5,000 bond.

The indictment alleges the 41-year-old Warren embezzled from the volunteer fire department dating back to 2009 by making cash withdrawals totaling $9,450 from two separate bank accounts, while also making unauthorized personal purchases totaling $356.
