JACKSONVILLE, NC (AP) -- A deputy chief at the North Topsail Beach Fire Department has been charged with embezzling more than $60,000.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reports that 48-year-old George Frederick Moore, III, was charged Thursday by the state Department of Insurance Criminal Investigation unit with four counts of embezzlement.

Warrants state Moore took $61,000 belonging to the department and the Local Firefighters Relief Fund between 2009 and last year.

Moore served as treasurer and trustee of the relief fund. He is free on $40,000 bond. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
