WILMINGTON — A former Sabina police officer now charged with three felonies is headed for a pre-trial hearing in early July.
Olin Mills, 43, was indicted for alleged theft in office and two counts of grand theft, all fourth-degree felonies. He was transported from a West Virginia jail to Clinton County May 19, as previously reported. He was released May 20 on a $10,000 cash surety bond.
Initially, the News Journal reported on the theft in office charges related to Mills’ work as a Sabina police officer. Sabina Police Chief Keynon Young told the News Journal Mills couldn’t immediately produce program funds under his control. Young said Mills left and returned with the money, but the bills didn’t match the ones Mills was given.
A Sabina construction company is the complainant related to the two grand theft charges against Mills.
A Clinton County Sheriff’s Office incident report said the owner of that company alleged his bookkeeper – Mills – stole money.
The report details that Mills is accused of issuing $8,472 in unauthorized checks, $17,228 in unauthorized debit card purchases and $16,012 in unauthorized ATM withdrawals – a total of $41,712 in allegedly stolen money.
Mills is scheduled to appear in Clinton County Court of Common Pleas for a pre-trail hearing on July 8 at 1:15 p.m. The Clinton County Public Defender’s office is listed as his attorney.
