Grand jury re-indicts former VSO

CROSSVILLE — A Cumberland County Grand Jury has re-indicted a former county Veterans Service Officer, raising the amount of funds reportedly missing from the office after the release of a state auditor's findings.

Mark Allen Daniels, 49, who listed a Chestnut Oak Dr. address, was incited by the county grand jury in September 2012 on a charge of theft of more than $10,000. His case has been on the Criminal Court docket since.

Late last month the Comptroller's Division of Investigations released a report alleging that Daniels was responsible for "at least" $134,244 from the county VSO. The indictment states the missing funds were in the form of currency and checks.

The losses represent a three-year period, according to the report that goes on to speculate that Daniels' poor record keeping has prevented investigators from determining the exact amount of funds missing.

On Sept. 9, the grand jury returned a superseding indictment charging Daniels with theft of more than $60,000.

Daniels is to appear in Criminal Court for formal reading of the indictment on Friday, along with other defendants who were recently indicted.

Other cases heard by the grand jury include:
