PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — The former police chief in the southeast Missouri town of Perryville is facing charges of felony theft, forgery and misdemeanor making a false report.

The Southeast Missourian reports that charges were filed Thursday against Keith Tarrillion by the Missouri Attorney General's office, which had been investigating Tarrillion on allegations made by city employees earlier this year.

Tarrillion does not have a listed attorney.

He resigned as chief in March, but remains on the city payroll as part of a resignation agreement.

In the wake of Tarrillion's resignation, Perryville city officials decided to ask voters whether the police chief position should be elected or appointed. A vote on the issue is Tuesday.

A former metro-east police chief will spend 18-months on probation and lose his right to carry a badge after pleading guilty to official misconduct.

Former New Athens Chief Dallas Hill admitted taking an Apple iPod and iPad from the department's evidence locker for personal use.

St. Clair County Prosecutor Brandon Kelly says it's the kind of crime officials hate to see. "You never want to have to do anything like this. You never want to have to prosecute a police officer, because they're part of our team."

Though the 27-year-old Hill won't report to a probation officer, the felony conviction bars him from being a police officer and carrying a gun.
