Fox 32 - Mecosta County Couple Arrested for VFW Embezzlement

Mecosta County Couple Arrested for VFW Embezzlement

Posted: Updated:

Police say Kenneth and Julie Gilchrist used their positions at the post to write themselves checks and cash them for personal use.

This is the third VFW post in recent history hit with an embezzlement in Northern Michigan.

First it was the post in Shepherd.

Then the Harrison post in Clare County last month and most recently the now dissolved Big Rapids post in Mecosta County.

Julie already plead guilty to a lesser charge and agreed to testify in the case against her husband.

The prosecutor charged a third person in the crime but they have not yet been arrested.
