A former Cherokee County volunteer fire chief was booked into jail Monday on forgery and embezzlement charges.
Roger Dale Fine, 54, is charged with 16 counts of delivery of a forged note or instrument and one count of embezzlement, according to an indictment issued Thursday by a multicounty grand jury.
He turned himself in and was freed from the Cherokee County Detention Facility on $1,000 bond, a spokeswoman said.
Fine is accused of forging signatures on the fire department’s bank account.
Fine was the fire chief of the Peggs Volunteer Fire Department and a Cherokee County sheriff’s deputy.
He has been suspended as a deputy.
No court date has been set.
