The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained indictments and the arrest of a police chief accused of misconduct.

TBI Special Agents began investigating Jason Erik Redden back in August 2013 and discovered that while working as Chief of the Graysville Police Department, he sold, took for himself, or returned to the original owner three of the department’s seized vehicles. 

The investigation also revealed $4,128 in missing seized money or money paid to the department for towing and storage, for which the chief was responsible. 

Surveillance video captured Redden taking tools from a truck being held as evidence at the department on April 15. 

On Monday the Rhea County Grand Jury returned indictments for Redden, charging him with seven counts of Official Misconduct, two counts of Theft Over
$1,000, and one count of Theft Under $500. 

Redden turned himself into the Rhea County Jail, where at the time of this release, he was being held on a $15,000 bond.
