NEWBURGH, Ind. - A Newburgh man was arrested this week on charges of embezzling more than $100,000 from a former employer.
Joshua Kenworthy, 38, of Newburgh, was arrested on five counts of theft and two counts of forgery for allegedly embezzling $114,000 from Warrick County-based Fibertech.
A criminal investigation prompted by reports from current Fibertech employees allegedly showed that Kenworthy had sold plastic from Fibertech to several other companies for his personal gain.
An arrest warrant was issued for Kenworthy and served on June 24 while he was in custody at the Warrick County Jail on an unrelated matter.
He was being held on a $5,000 bond.
