Gloucestershire’s former chief fire officer Stewart Edgar has pled not guilty to a charge in connection with the sale of a Land Rover belonging to the fire service in April 2018.
Mr Edgar, 52, the former area manager of Tayside Fire and Rescue, stepped down from his role after he was accused of buying a Land Rover Discovery worth up to £8,000 for £500 after the service put it up for auction.
Mr Edgar, of Braehead Drive, Carnoustie, pled not guilty to the charge of fraud by abuse of position at Cheltenham Magistrates Court yesterday.
He spoke only to enter his plea and confirmed his name and address. He is due at Gloucester Crown Court on April 9 and he has been placed on conditional bail.
