WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

A Wichita Falls man is accused of using business credit cards for personal purchases over a five-month period.

On January 24, 2018, the accounting manager for a local business called the WFPD front desk to report an embezzlement. 

According to the arrest warrant, Kenneth Jordan Ellingson, 39, was making unauthorized charges on company-issued credit cards from August 2017 to January 2018.

When company officials questioned Ellingson about the questionable transactions he admitted to making the unauthorized charges and said he would repay the company.

As of April 4, 2018, Ellingson had not made an attempt to repay the more than $9,000 in unauthorized charges. On April 11, 2018, Ellingson came to the WFPD station to provide a statement. 

He told detectives he initially began using the cards with intentions of paying for the charges. Ellingson said he knew what he did was wrong and he deserves what he gets.

A warrant was issued for Ellingson's arrest on April 16, 2018. He is no longer in the Wichita Co. Jail.
