ALLIANCE, Neb. (AP) — A former police sergeant has been accused of stealing money from his father in western Nebraska.

Box Butte County Court records say 42-year-old Forrest Hickman is charged with felony theft. His attorney didn't immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press. Hickman's next court date is Sept. 7.

The documents say Hickman transferred more than $28,000 of his father's money to his own accounts while handling his father's finances from Sept. 1, 2015, to December 2017. His father was receiving medical care then.

The documents also say Hickman sold his father's airplane and station wagon without his father's authorization.

Hickman worked several years for the Alliance Police Department.
