A Roland man was arrested Thursday after court documents show he allegedly stole almost $19,000 dollars from a Nevada business between August 2016 and February 2017.
Matthew Joseph Krueger, 30, was charged with first-degree theft, after allegedly using a credit card owned by Almaco for personal use.
According to court documents, Krueger used the card 314 times to make $18,873.85 worth of purchases, such as meals, clothing, and vehicle parts for his personal vehicle. Documents show Krueger used his information technology position with Almaco to deactivate software owned by the company to catch unauthorized purchases for the credit card he was responsible for.
Krueger was terminated from his position, and documents show that following his termination, he sent an email to the company and admitted that his actions were, “impulsive, greedy decisions.”
Krueger was released from Story County Jail on $10,000 bond.
Krueger has a preliminary hearing set for May 8.
First-degree theft is a class C felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
