Man Charged after Allegedly Purchasing Items on Company Credit Card

An employee at a business in Marshall County was arrested after an investigation unearthed information that he used a business credit card to purchase non-business related items.

The management at Huff’s Septic and Sewer in Plymouth notified the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department that there were unauthorized purchases on the company’s debit/credit card. The card was only supposed to be used for fuel purchases for the company and it was used to purchase food and other items.

After an investigation, it was found that Jerry Smalley was allegedly misusing the card and he was arrested for Theft, a Class D felony and booked into the Marshall County Jail. The case was forwarded to the Marshall County Prosecutor’s office where an additional charge of Fraud, a Class D felony, was filed.
