Former Bookkeeper Of Oklahoma Oil Pipe Supply Company Charged With Embezzling $7 Million

From Tulsa World on 6/10/2016:

A former bookkeeper at an Oklahoma City oil field pipe company has been charged by federal authorities in a $7 million embezzlement scheme that also involved mall kiosks in several states.

Rodney Alan Hager, 38, worked at J&B Pipe Supply Co. from 2007 to 2014. He also owned Mall Concepts of Oklahoma Inc., which operated mall kiosks in Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, Georgia and other states.

Federal prosecutors said Hager, of Choctaw, wired money from J&B Pipe Supply to several bank accounts under his control, including the Mall Concepts’ account. They said Hager opened credit card counts in the name of one of the owners of the pipe supply company, paying off the credit cards with money from corporate accounts.

He also took signed, blank company checks intended to pay suppliers and deposited them into his bank accounts or cashed them, prosecutors said.
