State investigating convicted ex-Brusly chief again
BRUSLY- The State Inspector General's Office is once again investigating the embattled ex-police chief of Brusly, Jamie Whaley.
Sources told the Investigative Unit it centers around missing property inside the Brusly Police Department when Whaley was the Chief.
The Inspector General's Office raided Whaley's house and was seen leaving with boxes. What they removed from the house is unclear.
Whaley plead guilty to malfeasance in office this year, after he used the town's gas card to fuel up his personal truck and boat. He was sentenced to 18-months of probation, and is now a convicted felon.
Whaley confessed to News 2 about everything he did shortly after he got caught.
"I used the town's fleet card to put fuel in my vehicle," Whaley said.
Sources tell News 2 the Inspector General's Investigation could last several weeks. Details on what investigators took and what they were looking for may not be released for at least a month.
