Authorities say the Bruce Fowle, 62, had been stealing from two Bangor organizations for several years.

BANGOR, Maine (AP) _ The former treasurer of the Bangor-Breakfast Kiwanis Club and Greater Bangor 4th of July Corp. has pleaded guilty to stealing about $140,000 from the organizations over several years.

Bruce Fowle on Thursday pleaded guilty to two counts of theft in a Bangor courtroom.

Authorities say the 62-year-old Fowle had been stealing from the organizations for several years, and an investigation began last August when members of the organizations realized money was missing.

The Greater Bangor 4th of July Corp. raises money for the city's annual fireworks display.

Fowle is no longer involved with either group. WABI-TV  reports that he pledged in court to repay the money.

He will be sentenced at a future date.
