Investigators from the Michigan State Police Mt. Pleasant Post arrested a Mt. Pleasant man for embezzlement following a year-long investigation.
In September of 2019, a Mt. Pleasant business owner contacted the Michigan State Police Mt. Pleasant Post and met with a detective sergeant about a possible embezzlement of funds from their business over the course of an unknown number of years.
Detectives requested the assistance of the Central Michigan University School of Accounting, Forensic Accounting class and their professor. With their forensic investigative assistance, it was determined that over $100,000 in funds had been embezzled over the course of four years.
On January 7, 2021, Gregory Lee Millis, a 49-year-old Mt. Pleasant man, was arrested on an 8-count felony warrant issued by the Isabella County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office for the charges of Embezzlement and Using a Computer to Commit a Crime.
Millis could face a maximum of 64 years, if convicted of all counts.
