SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A 44-year-old Lake Charles man has been accused of stealing nearly $100,000 from his employer by fabricating expense reports, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Randle W. Johnson was arrested Friday on one count of theft over $1,500 and 30 counts of computer fraud.

"Johnson used a computer to fabricate fraudulent invoices for expenses and turned them in to the company for reimbursement," Myers said Tuesday in a news release. "Upon questioning, Johnson confirmed that from May 2012 to August 1, 2014, he was reimbursed for a total of $98,565."

Bond was set at $17,500.
