(Painesville)  The police chief of the Lake County community of Timberlake is jailed, along with an officer there.

38-year-old police chief David Phillips, and 36 year old Officer Ann Murray, were arrested Friday in Parma.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation has been investigating the pair since October 2013.  They were both suspended without pay October 17th.

A Lake County grand jury found the pair stole property or services valued at $7500.00 or more, and used their status as public officials to "aid in committing the offense".

They will be in court in Lake County on Monday.
