COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The State Auditor's Auditors Office has served a demand on former Covington County Fire Chief Jerry Warren for more than $20,000.

The State Auditors Office is demanding that Warren pay back the embezzled money, along with interest and cost of recovery.
Warren is currently out of a $5000 bond while he awaits trial on the criminal charges.
