BRUSLY - Jamie Whaley, who admitted to News 2 he used more than a thousand dollars in town funds to fuel up his personal vehicle and boat, announced plans to resign as Brusly's chief of police Monday.

"I don't want the town of Brusly drug through the mud," Whaley told News 2 Monday. He said his resignation will be effective April 25.

Whaley, 36, faces indictments for theft and malfeasance in the fuel use. He was arrested earlier this year on the same charges, and investigators said he charged $1,120 to his town fuel card.

In an interview with the News 2 Investigative Unit this past February, Whaley admitted to the fuel use and apologized to the people of Brusly. He also paid the money back.

Whaley has also been working as a part-time patrol office for the Plaquemine Police. He said Monday he did not currently have plans to leave that position.
