The former treasurer of an Ontario County fire district accused of stealing money he was supposed to oversee is due back in court.

We'll be tracking the hearing for 43-year-old Michael Mason of Canandaigua. He's charged with grand larceny.

While Mason was treasurer for the Crystal Beach Fire Department in Gorham, police say he stole $50,000 and used it on tanning, shopping sprees and cable bills. Investigators say Mason also used cash and credit cards from the department to shop at Waterloo Premium Outlets and a jewelry store.

Mason is due in Gorham Town Court at 7 p.m.
