Virginia State Police officials are investigating the town of Middletown on a possible case of embezzlement, according to Virginia State Police Sgt. F.L. (Les) Tyler.
Mayor Charles Habaugh IV confirmed the charges, but refused to make any other comment.
"The case is still undergoing investigation," he said. "The state police will contact me when they know more."
The investigation may be delayed due to the holiday season, Harbaugh added, adding that the town will likely not see a conclusion until after the holidays.
