An Austin Chick-fil-A manager is being charged with stealing over $119,000, as reported by Fox 7. Justin Roy Felder had been under investigation since 2013.

Three years ago, the operations director noticed a huge refund in the daily reports and asked Felder about it. Fox 7 wrote:

When asked about the refund, Felder admitted to authorizing it. The refund had been processed on a register that does not have cash, a terminal that is used for order taking in the drive thru. When asked where the money was located from the Felder responded, "There is no money, it was credited to my bank card."

The police dug into Chick-fil-A’s sales records and Felder’s bank account, finding 246 similar refunds from 2011 to 2013. This all happened at the location in Maconda Park West on Farm to Market Road 620 near 183 and 45. Felder is being charged with second degree felony theft.

Earlier this year, a man attempted to buy $2,000 worth of gift cards from Chick-fil-A’s West Martin Luther King Boulevard location using stolen credit cards.
