Indiana Auto Repair Employee Charged with Theft
May 22, 2019—An employee from Zolman Tire in South Bend, Ind., has been accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the business, according to a report by abc57.
In February, the director of sales and operation at Zolman Tire spoke with a police officer, according to the report. He reported that in late August 2018, after some attendance issues and odd behavior at work, an employee for the last ten years and manager, Stephen Wroblewski, stopped showing up for work and apparently had quit, according to the probable cause affidavit.
The director said that he began investigating sales Wroblewski was involved in based on his odd behavior.
Between March 5, 2018 and August 13, 2018, the director reported that Wroblewski had stolen about $6,063.93 from Zolman Tire, court documents said.
The director told police that Wroblewski would sell products or services to customers, have customers pay in cash, then Wroblewski would delete the customer orders and pocket the cash, court documents said.
Wroblewski was arrested on May 16 and released the next day from the St. Joseph County Jail on his own recognizance. He is charged with one count of theft and is due in court on May 28, according to abc57.
