Man faces felony in embezzlement
A 26-year-old Carson City man faces felony charges in connection with the theft of $2,200 from his employer.
Jordan J. Molina was taken into custody on an embezzlement charge after he failed to make the night deposits on Nov. 2 and 3, 2018, and then didn’t turn up for work the next day, according to court documents.
When confronted Molina allegedly said he took the money to gamble in an effort to make enough to pay his rent. He said when he lost that money, he took more to try and win it back.
Molina was booked into Douglas County jail early Friday morning.
