MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) - The former director of the Hamblen County-Morristown Solid Waste System is accused of stealing more than $200,000 from the agency.

According to a news release from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, Ronald L. Brady Jr. was indicted Monday for theft. He was booked into the Hamblen County Jail on Wednesday where he was being held on bond.

The TBI began investigating Brady after an audit by the state comptroller’s office. It found that from July 1, 2010, through Jan. 31, 2014, Brady wrote himself additional payroll checks totaling more than $190,000.

He also is accused of using the agency’s credit card to make personal purchases totaling nearly $32,000 and used agency funds to pay nearly $4,000 in personal debt. Brady subsequently resigned.

A phone number listed for Brady was disconnected.
