Geismar- An employee of a chemical plant in Ascension Parish has been charged with one count of felony theft for claiming time worked and overtime hours he knowingly did not work since January 2011.
Authorities say Jesse Brooks, who was an Operations Coordinator at Honeywell Inc. in Geismar, defrauded the plant of nearly $150,000.
Brooks has since bonded out of jail.
