ISP Det. Sam Stearley, of the Terre Haute Post, charged Rick R. Sutherland, 45, with seven felony counts of theft from National Printing Converters, Brazil.
According to information provided by an ISP press release, in January 2008 ISP detectives began an investigation into illegal use of a company credit card at the request of the Brazil City Police.
According to ISP detectives, Sutherland was employed with the company for approximately 20 years, working his way up to being a member of the management team. Investigators reported that as part of the management team, Sutherland was issued a company credit card.
During the course of the investigation, Stearley and ISP Det. Chris Carter discovered Sutherland allegedly made unauthorized transactions totaling over $110,000 dollars in a four-year period from 2004.
On Monday, Sutherland was arrested without incident and transported to the Clay County Justice Center, where he is being held on a $7,000 cash bond. The Clay County Prosecutor's Office reviewed the ISP case report and filed seven counts of theft against Sutherland.
If convicted, officials confirmed Sutherland could receive six months to three years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine for each class D felony theft charge.
Jail officials confirmed Sutherland remains incarcerated awaiting further court proceedings.
