KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Officials say the former nutrition director for Knox County Schools has been charged with theft and official misconduct.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1OTU6YY) 49-year-old Jon Dickl was booked into the Knox County Detention Center on Sept. 10 and released on bond. Dickl is charged with a count of theft between $1,000 and $10,000 and a count of official misconduct.

He declined comment to the newspaper on Monday.

Officials say an investigation revealed that Dickl was improperly reimbursed over $3,000 in travel expenses through "a double-dipping scheme."

Dickl was placed on leave in September 2014 following allegations of him misusing funds. He resigned in November.

Spokeswoman for the school system Melissa Ogden says they have "nothing further to add" on Dickl.

It isn't immediately clear if Dickl has an attorney.
