BROOKSVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Starkville man faces charges of embezzlement from a Noxubee County business.
Police Chief Reginald Adams says Odie Wallace, 55, was the manager of the Dollar General Store in Brooksville.
He says company loss prevention notified his office on Friday about a possible case of embezzlement.
Adams says during questioning, Wallace confessed to taking $3,500 from the store's deposits over the period of two months.
He says Wallace claimed he was going through a divorce and took the money, but intended to pay it back.
Wallace is currently free on a $1,000 bond.
