DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A former southwestern Ohio police officer accused of stealing nearly $100,000 from the police lodge where he was treasurer has pleaded guilty to grand theft.

Montgomery County’s prosecutor says 47-year-old Fredrick Wilson, of Centerville, was convicted Wednesday of stealing from the Oakwood Fraternal Order of Police and was sentenced to 30 days in jail. The former Oakwood officer also must perform 180 hours of community service and repay more than $99,000.

A message left for Wilson’s attorney wasn’t immediately returned.

Wilson became treasurer of Oakwood Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 107 in 2009. Another officer found an outstanding balance of $14,000 on the lodge credit card.

The prosecutor says an audit showed that Wilson stole from the lodge’s checking and savings accounts and made unauthorized purchases on its credit card.
