Stephen Hopkins allegedly began embezzling funds from the $9.4 million HealthPlus Federal Credit Union in Jackson, Miss., a few months after he was appointed its CEO.

According to a grand jury indictment filed in the First Judicial District of Hinds County, Hopkins allegedly embezzled at least $15,000 of the credit union’s funds starting in January 2019. The embezzlement allegedly continued until June 2021. He was named CEO in April 2018. The indictment did not report when the alleged embezzlement was discovered or how Hopkins allegedly carried out the theft and concealed it.
