Brazil's former police chief is accused of theft.

A former Brazil city police chief is accused of stealing grant money for personal use. Indiana state police say 46 year old Terry Harrison cashed a $2,000 check from the Indiana University Automotive Safety Program in July of 2008 and never deposited the money into the city‘s accounts.

State Police Sgt. Joe Watts says the grant was intended for the purchase of car safety seats for children. Harrison was arrested Tuesday afternoon at his mother‘s house. Watts says Harrison left the department after he discovered he was under investigation.

    Very poor reporting and very inaccurate. Charge was for failure to deposit funds, which were never missing and he did not leave the department because he was being investigated. Very political situation.
