BRISTOL, Maine (AP) - A Maine bookkeeper has been charged with theft after police say he embezzled more than $150,000 from two businesses in Lincoln County.
Joseph Corson, of Bristol, was arrested Tuesday. Authorities say Corson was the target of an investigation after the owner of two companies noticed that money was missing from the books.
Police say 51-year-old Corson, an employee of Ideal Septic and McPhee Enterprises, overpaid himself and used the companies’ credit cards to make unauthorized purchases over a 10-year period.
He was released on $25,000 bail. There was no answer Wednesday at a phone listed in his name.
