A captain with the Hattiesburg Police Department is scheduled to enter a plea next week on an embezzlement charge.
Jamie Hooker was arrested October 21st following an investigation into record keeping and handling of evidence within the police department.
Authorities say the charge against Hooker is connected to a television set that was seized by police.
Hooker was originally charged with grand larceny. A grand jury returned an embezzlement charge after an investigation by MBI and Attorney General Jim Hood.
