The Forum reports that 42-year-old Charles John Putney of West Fargo was charged Friday a charge of Class B felony theft.

Putney's attorney, Mark Friese, says he had only recently received the case documents and could not comment on it.

Deanne Eisenschenk, operations manager for Petro Stopping Center in Fargo and in Minot, says it's been a shock for the family owned company.

Charging documents filed in the case against Putney say owner Diane Schatz, Eisenschenk's mother, reported to Fargo police in February 2012 that her accountant, Putney, had been embezzling funds from the company.
