Five men charged in $641K embezzlement from Millsboro American Legion
The Delaware Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) reported Friday that four Millsboro men and a Georgetown man have been charged with the theft of $641,000 from Millsboro American Legion Post 28 between July of 2012 and January of 2015.
According to DGE officials, the five men — along with a sixth man, who has since died — were officers of Post 28 at the time of the thefts and allegedly wrote and signed numerous checks made out to cash, cashed the checks at local banks and did not return the funds to or use them for the post’s business.
The suspected embezzlement was reported to DGE in January and, after a three-month investigation into the alleged felony theft, charges were filed April 7 against the five men.
