The former executive director of a federally funded northern Kentucky drug task force admitted to stole money from the task force, according to federal prosecutors.

Timothy George Fegan, 52, pleaded guilty to one count of theft of government money, according to prosecutors.

Fegan, who worked for the Buffalo Trace/Gateway Narcotics Task Force at the time, wrongfully took thousands of dollars from the organization, over an extended period of time, according to prosecutors.

Fegan admitted he took cash that Task Force agents had seized during drug investigations as well as money the Task Force had on hand for undercover drug buys, according to prosecutors.

Fegan is scheduled to be sentenced June 19, 2014.
