GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - An East Carolina University professor has been indicted on charges he stole more than $110,000 from the school by falsifying the time he worked between 2009 and 2013.

Local media outlets report 52-year-old David Weismiller faces five counts of obtaining property by false pretense. Weismiller is a professor of family medicine and works with ECU Physicians and Vidant Medical Center.

A university spokeswoman said Wednesday that Weismiller will be suspended. He was indicted on Sept. 14.

Court documents say a grand jury heard evidence that Weismillier submitted inaccurate time records and didn’t report periods of absence from his then-position as an associate provost at the university.

Weismiller is free on a $15,000 secured bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
