Bossier Man Accused of Bilking Employer Out of Thousands
A Bossier City man is accused of swindling more than $30,000 dollars from his employer.
54-year-old Robert Phillips Jr. of Bossier is a former business manager for a Shreveport operation and he is accused of paying himself an extra $31,500 in October and December.
Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says Phillips has been arrested on a charge of theft. Investigators say an accountant discovered that Phillips had received five paychecks in October 2021 and eight in December.
Prator says that according to a report filed Dec. 29, 2021, Phillips left the office shortly after the accountant emailed him about the extra paychecks, and did not return. Phillips is currently in jail at the Caddo Correctional Center on a $75,000 bond.
It was not clear whether Phillips has an attorney who could speak for him.
