GONZALES - Sheriff's deputies arrested an Ascension Parish man after they said he stole nearly $5,000 worth of fuel using his former employer's gas card.

Deputies charged Joseph Albert, 44, with 12 felony counts of unauthorized use of an access card.

Investigators said on Aug. 7 Albert's former employer told deputies their company credit card had been used without authorization. Detectives said they learned Albert, who had been fired in July, had been using the fuel card for personal use. Investigators said he used the card twelve times and racked up $4,980.33 in expenses, and also used the card in other parishes.

Deputies arrested Albert on Aug. 19 and booked him into the parish jail. He was released on a $30,000 bond.

Detectives said their investigation is continuing, and more charges may follow.
