DUBOIS, Pa. (AP) - A man already serving 46 months in federal prison for a check-kiting scheme involving another trucking firm in Ohio has been charged with stealing from the employees of his central Pennsylvania trucking firm, too.

The Pennsylvania State Police have filed 584 theft charges against 55-year-old Timothy Kephart of Morrisdale.

They say he stole money from paychecks of 131 employees of Kephart Trucking in Clearfield County. The money was deducted from their paychecks and supposed to go to their retirement accounts or insurance, but Kephart allegedly spent it instead.

Kephart allegedly stole at least $329,000. He’s also being sued by the federal government for violating employee retirement fun regulations.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Kephart. He was sentenced in the unrelated check-kiting scheme last year by a federal judge in Ohio.
