A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $400,000 from the United States Army.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Michael Craig Miller pleaded guilty to charges of theft of public money and money laundering for embezzling from the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency in 2006 while he was an employee of EXP Pharmaceutical.

EXP Pharmaceutical is in charge of returning unneeded pharmaceuticals to their manufacturers and vendors. According to prosecutors, Miller took payments paid to EXP Pharmaceutical from a drug vendor and put them in his own bank account.

Miller reportedly used the money to buy a house in the Philippines and a Chrysler 300C Sedan.

His sentencing date has not yet been set.
