CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) – A Cape Girardeau man faces a theft charge following accusations he stole nearly $73,000 from his employer.

The Southeast Missourian reports 32-year-old Jeffrey D. Lage is charged with theft over $25,000, which is a Class B felony.

A probable cause statement says Velosity Electronics was notified by the Bank of Missouri that its account was getting low. The company checked its bank statements and found the missing money was being transferred by Lage to pay his personal credit card.

The transactions began in March 2014 and continued through October. Lage has worked for the company since 2008.

An initial arraignment is set for April 27 in Jackson. It wasn’t immediately clear if Lage has an attorney.
