OAKLAND, Neb. (WOWT) - A former Nebraska police chief has been federally charged for misusing public funds.
Last year, the Nebraska State Auditor issued a 34-page report saying Oakland Police Chief Terry Poland misused thousands of dollars in public funds to buy things like a wakeboard and fishing shelter.
Court records state the federal charge is for buying a basketball backboard for his home.
Poland resigned last August. His preliminary hearing is set for April 14.
