The former chief of the Farmington Volunteer Fire Department turned himself in Friday on a grand jury indictment charging him with embezzlement and insurance fraud, Alcorn County Sheriff Ben Caldwell said.

David Boren, 47, of County Road 255, was indicted on the charges, which came after an investigation by the sheriff’s office and others.

Count 1 of the indictment alleges that in 2014, Boren did unlawfully “with the intent to appropriate to himself money, knowingly execute, collude or conspire to execute or attempt to execute a scheme or artifice to obtain by means of false or fraudulent pretense, money from Glatpelter Claims Management, Inc. on behalf of American Alternative Insurance Corporation… .”

Count 2 of the indictment alleges that between 2010 and 2016, Boren did unlawfully “embezzle, fraudulently secret, conceal or convert to his own use or make away with property or money” with a value of $1,000 or more but less than $20,000 which was “entrusted to his care or possession by virtue of his employment with Farmington Volunteer Fire Department.”
