Man suspected of felony theft for taking employer's money

In some cases, it can take a long period of time to build a case against someone suspected of embezzling money from an employer. The alleged offenses may have taken place a little bit at a time, over a period of months or years, in order not to draw attention to what was going on.

Sometimes, though, the alleged fraud takes place over a much shorter timeframe -- and law enforcement officials are able to move much more quickly. This appears to be the situation with a Bossier City man, who was arrested recently on a charge of felony theft after allegedly stealing more than $200,000 from his employer. The man worked as an office manager at a Shreveport home health business.

Unlike some schemes, where money is redirected subtly and without any fanfare, the man allegedly took a business check from the business where he worked and made it out to himself. Officials say that he then used the funds to open several accounts at a Bossier City bank.

The activity quickly captured the attention of the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force, which is made up of officers at the city and parish level. Members of the task force arrested the man after a two-day investigation. The man was booked into jail almost immediately.

While the facts might appear to be stacked against the man in this case, it is important to remember that everyone is entitled to mount a defense when they are charged with crimes, particularly serious felony charges.
