A Sept. 15 trial has been set for former Phoenix Suns 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.
