April 7th Trial Set For Former Sixers ‘Star’ Dumas
PHOENIX (AP/CBS) — An April 7 trial has been scheduled for former Sixers player Richard Dumas on charges that he stole merchandise from Luke Air Force Base’s exchange store.
Dumas has pleaded not guilty to eight felony charges of organized retail theft.
Authorities say Dumas stole about $800 worth of merchandise from the Air Force base’s exchange store while working with a janitorial service there in 2012.
Police say Dumas was seen on store surveillance cameras taking cigarettes, alcohol, food, DVDs and shoes.
Dumas played for the Suns from 1992 to 1995 and helped the team reach the NBA finals in 1993. He played with the Sixers during the 1995-96 season, under coach John Lucas.
