MINDEN - A 36-year-old Bossier City accountant is accused of stealing at least $360,000 from the Minden construction company where he worked, and allegedly gave much of the money to strippers.

Webster Parish sheriff's Detective Scott Tucker tells the Minden Press-Herald that Murlin Dale Graham estimates about $10,000 of the money remains. He's been booked with four counts of felony theft by fraud.

Tucker says Graham set up corporations with names similar to those of his employer's big suppliers and vendors, sending checks meant for those companies into his own accounts.

Tucker did not identify Graham's employer. He described it as a family-owned company that is now trying to figure out how to pay a lot of overdue bills.
