SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A former manager/bookkeeper for Trinity Southern Foods has been accused of stealing nearly $100,000 from his employer.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says 54-year-old Jeffery Norbury, of Bossier City, was arrested Monday by Louisiana Probation and Parole for violating conditions of parole. He was convicted in 1991 for stealing over $35,000 from the City of Shreveport, while employed as the payroll and benefits coordinator. He was also convicted in 1995 for theft from another Shreveport business.

Prator, in a news release Thursday, said Norbury was booked Wednesday with felony theft involving Trinity Southern Foods. He says investigators allege the theft occurred between Jan. 2, 2012 and Dec. 31, 2013.

Detective Bobby Herring examined point of sale records, bank deposits and accounting software to uncover the alleged theft of $97,655.
