One of the area’s most popular pizza shops, Johnny’s Pizza, may have been stolen from by one of it’s own employees.
Bastrop resident Eric Carney was arrested Tuesday at the company’s headquarters at 100 Arkansas Road in West Monroe. He was booked into OCC on felony theft charges.
Arrest reports said company employees reported suspicious and unauthorized activity on his work-issued credit cards. They told investigators they have noticed these purchased over the past six months.
The reports stated a review of his records showed he bought about 136 computers that totaled $51,814.11– all on the company’s dollar.
Affidavits said the suspect couldn’t explain his actions to the company and couldn’t tell police where all of the equipment was, other than five computers at his home.
