FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A former northern Kentucky police chief has been indicted on charges of theft and abuse of a public trust.

Attorney General Jack Conway’s office says Mark Lane Posey was also indicted Tuesday on 70 counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument. Posey was police chief in Falmouth, about 40 miles south of Cincinnati, from March 2008 until he resigned in February.

No phone listing could be located to reach Posey for comment.

Conway’s office said Posey is accused of taking more than $10,000 in funds from a drug task force account and of buying a gun with police department funds and selling the weapon to a friend for a larger amount.

The attorney general’s Office of Special Prosecutions is handling the case.
