A Newburgh man is arrested after authorities say he stole over $100,000 from a Warrick County business.

Indiana State Police say 38-year-old Joshua Kenworthy was arrested earlier this week and charged with for Forgery and Theft, after an investigation revealed he embezzled over $114,000 from Fibertech, a company located in northwest Warrick County.

ISP says the investigation began in February after employees at Fibertech noticed Kenworthy, a former employee, had allegedly sold plastic from Fibertech to several other companies for his personal gain.

During the investigation, ISP say they discovered that Kenworthy had been selling plastic to other companies and depositing the cash into his own plastic business account that he developed in January 2013.

Between January 2013 and February 2014, ISP says Kenworthy allegedly exerted unauthorized control over property of Fibertech and deposited over $114,000 into his personal account.

A felony arrest warrant was issued earlier this week for Kenworthy's arrest.

ISP says the warrant was served June 24 while he was in custody in the Warrick County Jail on an unrelated matter.

He is being held on $5,000 bond.
