A Mills man is accused of misusing money while he was in charge of war veterans post.

Fifty-year old George Hall has pleaded not guilty to one charge of theft.

Investigators with the Mills Police Department say from July 2013 through January, Hall was the Quartermaster of the VFW post.

During his tenure, Police say he had access to the post's debit card, and made more than $15,000 in purchases and ATM withdrawals.

When interviewed Hall said the money was used for various items at the VFW post, but then later said some of it was used for personal items, such as food, minutes for his cell phone and Facebook games.

He is being held on $10,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison, if convicted.
