KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A Kalispell man who stole scrap iron from his employer and made unauthorized charges on a company credit card has been given a suspended sentence and must pay nearly $60,000 in restitution to the foundation repair company where he worked.
The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1uoLqk4 ) 37-year-old Douglas LeDoux pleaded guilty Thursday theft by embezzlement. He was given an eight-year suspended sentence with the Department of Corrections.
Prosecutors allege LeDoux took a truck and trailer from Montana Helical Pier, loaded it with scrap metal and tried to sell it at Pacific Steel & Recycling. Law officers located him there.
The court allowed LeDoux to pay restitution from his 401(k) retirement account.
