Former Fire Chief Arrested

After an internal investigation, a former fire chief has been arrested on an embezzlement charge, accused of improperly using a credit card. Larry Nunnery is a former assistant chief of the Madison Volunteer Fire Department, and WCHS TV reports he admitted to making inappropriate purchases with the station's credit card. An internal audit flagged the purchases, and a follow-up investigation led to the arrest. Nunnery has been with the Madison Fire Department for more than twenty years. West Virginia State Police are leading the investigation.
