CORTEZ, Colo. (AP) Court records show a former Montezuma County undersheriff used taxpayer money to pay for personal firearms and that he later tried to sell three of those weapons.

Robin Cronk is charged with 17 embezzlement counts involving purchases totaling more than $7,400.

Cronk resigned in June and was arrested in July after a Colorado Bureau of Investigation probe.

He is free on $1,500 bond.

The Cortez Journal reports that the investigation focused on two rifles and a handgun owned by Cronk.

Cronk later tried to sell those weapons by posting ads in the Journal, the Mancos Times and the Dolores Star.
