PORT ALLEN, La. (AP) - The former Brusly police chief accused of stealing guns and cash from the department is scheduled to go to trial in April.

WBRZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Dy37S2 ) Jamie Whaley and his attorneys met with prosecutors for a pre-trial conference Monday. The trial date was set for April 20.

Whaley resigned last year after admitting using a city fleet card to take more than $1,000 of fuel for his personal vehicle and boat. State officials later accused Whaley of stealing several guns and forging a second signature on department checks worth $600 made out as cash to himself.

A judge sentenced Whaley to 18 months’ probation for the fuel theft.

His April trial will be for two charges of forgery and theft and one of malfeasance in office stemming from the state’s investigation.
