EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana man has been charged with theft for allegedly using his company credit card to purchase about $65,000 worth of firearms and outdoor recreational items.
Kyle D. Hollman of Boonville was arrested after an internal audit by ProLift Toyota Material Handling uncovered purchases Hollman, 29, allegedly made on his company credit card, and evidence that he altered the purchase orders to make his purchases appear authorized and legitimate.
The Evansville company alleged the thefts occurred over the course of three years and included nearly $30,000 worth of firearms and accessories and another $35,000 of online purchases of outdoors items such as backpacks, coolers and boots, the Evansville Courier & Press reported.
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that Hollman admitted to the thefts and was cooperating with state, county and federal investigators.
The investigation remains active as financial records are still being examined and the firearms and other recovered items are catalogued.
Hollman faced 20 charges of theft, including multiple felony counts and one misdemeanor. Online court records do not list an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
