CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT)- Joshua Hill is charged with embezzlement after investigators say he stole jewelry from a woman having a medical emergency.
It happened in February, but police says they just found out about it because a family friend came asking for the missing jewelry. Four months later, police are getting some answers about what they say happened- and it means one of their own could face jail.
Joshua Hill was hired back in 2009 to serve and protect. Now, the Chesterfield officer faces felony charges. Police say Joshua Hill took jewelry from a victim- and instead of turning it in, kept it- and sold it.
Police say they did get the jewelry back after a quick investigation. It was sold to a pawn shop in the Tri-cities.
