A 49-year-old man is free on bond and awaiting trial, after being charged with using his former employer’s business account to obtain more than $21,000 worth of goods from an automotive parts store in Naperville.

Joseph T. McGinnis surrendered June 14 at the Naperville police station, and was released after posting $5,000 bond, the mandatory 10 percent of his $50,000 bail. He faces trial in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton on a felony charge of theft or unauthorized control over $10,000 but less than $100,000 in cash or property, according to court records.

McGinnis lives on the 10700 block of Royal Porthcawl Drive.

Police Sgt. Bill Davis said McGinnis was arrested after several thefts between August 2010 and May 2013.

“McGinnis was a former employee of an auto repair shop in Glen Ellyn,” Davis wrote Friday in an email. He allegedly made “numerous” purchases and charged them “to a business account that (he) did not have authorization to use,” Davis wrote.

The allegedly fraudulent purchases were made “at an auto parts store in the 700 block of Enterprise Court,” Davis wrote. An online telephone directory indicated a NAPA Auto Parts store is located there.

Davis said “the total amount charged to the account was in excess of $21,000.”

An examination of court documents revealed McGinnis has no criminal record in DuPage, Will or Kane counties. His preliminary court appearance date is pending.
