Morris arrested on multiple counts of embezzling funds intended for the use in operations of the Onley Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company following a State Police investigation initiated by a Virginia State Police Special Agent in November 2012. The embezzlement occurred over a period of several years.
As a result of the investigation, an Accomack County Grand Jury returned nine counts of embezzlement against the fire company's treasurer (James R. Morris)
Morris was released on a $1,000 bond from the Accomack County Jail and the investigation is continuing.
