Former Braxton County Deputy Sheriff C. S. "Shane" Dellinger, who more recently served as a volunteer policeman for the Town of Grantsville, has been charged with six counts of embezzlement.

Dellinger is being charged for allegedly falsifying records or accounts in order to defraud the State of West Virginia of money from a drunk driving grant issued to Braxton County.

The charges indicate Dellinger claimed he was doing work for the program, when records indicate he was not.

The charges were filed in Kanawha County. Dellinger posted bond and was released.

Dellinger is reportedly being investigated for problems that surfaced while engaged with the Town of Grantsville.

The officer allegedly gave a concealed weapons class in Grantsville, collecting money, when he apparently did not have the appropriate credentials. The money has not been returned.
