A Brookneal police officer who lives in Halifax County was arrested Monday afternoon on a charge of grand larceny, according to Corinne Geller, Virginia State Police public relations manager.
State Police took Brookneal Police Sgt. Brian Lee Carr, 35, of Nathalie, into custody without incident, Geller said.
In October 2009, the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office began investigating allegations made against Carr in his capacity as a sworn employee of the Brookneal Police Department, Geller said. An undercover operation resulted in the arrest warrant for one count of grand larceny, she explained.
Carr was released on bond, Geller said.
The criminal investigation remains ongoing by the Virginia State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Appomattox Field Office, she added.
