A Former Muncie Police Officer has been charged for allegedly embezzling money from the Fraternal Order of Police.
40-year-old George Edward Hopper is accused of embezzling more than 26-thousand dollars while he was the treasurer of the local Fraternal Order of Police between 2010 and 2013.
Hopper resigned from his job with the Muncie Police Department in March 2013, after F-O-P officials launched an investigation into missing lodge funds.
Hopper surrendered himself at the Delaware County jail Friday afternoon, then was released after posting bond.
