An Alabama volunteer firefighter is facing felony theft charges after stealing approximately $2,000 in donated funds his fire company had raised for breast cancer research. Phillip Jones, 34, of the Tallassee Volunteer Fire Department has allegedly admitted to stealing the funds on several occasions and using it to buy drugs.
The funds were raised through the sale of the TVFD’s pink breast cancer awareness T-shirts. Besides the criminal charges, Jones has been dismissed from the fire company.
