DENVER (AP) - A man accused of running a fraudulent breast cancer charity has pleaded guilty in a separate case in which prosecutors say he stole more than $1 million through a scheme involving the sale of donated mattresses.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/eG5DrN ) 36-year-old Adam Shryock pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of theft and one count of charitable fraud. He is scheduled to be sentenced May 16.

Prosecutors say he collected mattresses returned under a warranty program, claiming they were being donated to Ecumenical Refugee and Immigration Services and distributed to refugees. Shryock was accused of selling most of the mattresses for profit.

He founded Boobies Rock!, a breast cancer charity that was the target of a 2013 lawsuit from the Colorado Attorney General’s Office.
