The assistant chief of the Oden Ridge Volunteer Fire Department is charged with stealing thousands of dollars.
The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says the fire chief was notified of a transaction by the bank and reported it to authorities.
After an investigation, deputies developed the assistant chief, 33-year-old Bryan Adams Burns, as the suspect. He turned himself in on March 6 and was released the same day on a $5,000 bond.
The sheriff’s office says Burns made about $13,500 worth of withdrawals and purchases. He’s charged with first-degree theft of property.
