A former Berkeley County deputy is on trial on charges of embezzling guns from the sheriff’s office.

Fifty-four-year-old Dennis E. Streets of Martinsburg is charged with felony embezzlement and fraudulent scheme. The Herald-Mail reports that Street’s trial began Tuesday in Berkeley County Circuit Court.

Streets retired in January 2014 after working at the sheriff’s office since 1982. He was indicted in October 2014.

The indictment accuses Streets of taking more than $5,000 worth of guns from the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office between October 2008 and March 2013.
