NILES, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say the former executive director of an ambulance service in southwestern Michigan misappropriated nearly $100,000 in funds from the nonprofit.

The Berrien County prosecutor’s office announced Tuesday that 49-year-old Timothy Gray of Clermont, Florida, is charged with embezzlement of $50,000 to $100,000.

Gray is free on bond and due in court in Niles later this month. Defense attorney Michael Cronkright says Gray “absolutely” will fight the charges.

The prosecutor’s office says Gray served in his post with the Southwestern Michigan Community Ambulance Service from 2009 through 2014. Investigators say they found excessive paid time off, improper holiday pay and other improper compensation.

The ambulance service operates in the Niles and Buchanan area. If convicted of the felony, Gray faces up to 15 years in prison.
