CHEROKEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma's Multicounty Grand Jury Thursday indicted a former Cherokee County volunteer fire department chief on charges of embezzlement and forging checks on the fire department's account.

According to the indictment, Roger Dale Fine, was chief of the Peggs Volunteer Fire Department. Checks written against the department's bank account required signatures from two of the three people authorized to write checks.

Fine is accused of forging the signature of one of those authorized on several checks. He was indicted on 17 charges total, including embezzlement and delivery of a forged note or instrument.

While writing checks in various businesses around town - $60 at Bob's Mini Mart, $48 at Mel's Diner, $265 at Peggs Hardware - and writing checks to individuals, the indictment alleges Fine embezzled more than $4,725.

If convicted, Fine could face up to seven years in prison for forging checks and up to five years for embezzlement.
