SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A Spartanburg County deputy fire marshal is accused of selling equipment belonging to the county in 2006, according to warrants provided by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. 

Charles "Tony" Barnett, 41, was charged with breach of trust with fraudulent intent, according to warrants.

The warrants said in December 2006 Barnett received four breathing apparatuses, valued between $2,000 and $10,000, and sold them for his own personal gain. 

Barnett acquired the items through his position at the Spartanburg County Fire Marshal's Office, warrants said.

He went before a bond court judge on Wednesday and was released on a personal recognizance bond.
