BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A man accused of embezzling from his employer, a waste management company, said he was paying a go-kart builder, court documents said.
Robert Boardman is accused of stealing $111,492 from RL Mechanical, according to a newly-released search warrant.
Investigators are looking in to how Boardman may have gotten away with billing his employer for work done by MCR Motorsports, a go cart engine company.
A private investigator uncovered 32 fraudulent invoices submitted between February 2013 and October 2013, according to the search warrant.
The invoices say MCR Motorsports conducted contracted work at the Rio Bravo Poso and Jasmin cogeneration plants, documents said.
MCR Motorsports denied any work completed. The owners told detectives they specialize in go cart motorsports, not cogeneration plants, documents said.
A friend and coworker told investigators that Boardman was deeply in debt and had sold company property in pawn shops, documents said.
