A Sylvan Lake man is facing fraud and theft charges following a five month RCMP investigation.

RCMP received a complaint from Red Flame Industries Inc. in May reporting a former manager had stolen approximately $71,000 from the company while employed by it.

The allegations revolved around both personal purchases made with a company credit card and manipulating the company payroll to pay himself more than he was entitled to receive, said RCMP Cpl. Kevin Halwa in a news release. The offences occurred between June 28, 2011 and Feb. 25, 2013.

Sean Keith Brouillette, 43, of Sylvan Lake, has been charged with one count of theft over $5,000 and one count of fraud over $5,000. He has been released on a $25,000 no deposit recognizance by a Justice of the Peace and is scheduled to appear in Red Deer Provincial Court Oct. 31st.
