A Wichita Falls man is accused of stealing more than $20,000 by misusing his company credit card. This includes racking up more than $10,000 at a gentleman's club.
Anthony Morgan-Hobbs is charged with theft over $20,00 and under $100,000.
According to the arrest affidavit:
A representative of Frontier Pro Services, a wind-power service company, reported the 30-year-old had used a company credit card without authorization. The representative gave police the credit card statements showing Morgan-Hobbs had amassed just over $20,000 in charges between February 16th and March 22nd.
The largest charge on the credit card was at the Maximus nightclub in Wichita Falls, totaling $10,666.75. A detective who was assigned to the case talked with the manager at the gentleman's club. The manager explained he knew the suspect and that he had actually charged more than $15,000 at the club.
An employee of the company was also contacted and they told investigators he had accompanied Morgan-Hobbs to the club with other co-workers. He explained that the suspect bought rounds of drinks for everyone at the bar. In addition, another co-worker said he had loaned money to Morgan-Hobbs to pay an outstanding warrant out of Decatur. However, the statements from the company card, show he paid $963.30 to the city of Decatur. Another co-worker said Morgan-Hobbs borrowed money to get his wedding ring out of a pawn shop. He did this in exchange for new tires of the co-worker's truck. The employee said he was unaware the company card was used to purchase those tires. That totaled nearly $3,500 at Firestone.
