MANKATO, Minn. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a Woodbury man with stealing funds from the Minnesota Army National Guard.

The Mankato Free Press reports (https://bit.ly/29kAwKq ) 31-year-old Matthew Hite was charged this week with felony theft in Blue Earth County District Court.

According to a criminal complaint, Hite was responsible for paying vendors for a banquet the National Guard set up at the Treasure Island Resort and Casino in 2014. He was supposed to pay out of a National Guard Paypal account but instead diverted Paypal funds into his own account, resulting in the theft of $11,430.

No residential telephone listing could be found for Hite in Woodbury.
