A Cobb County man is accused of writing himself checks — from his company’s account — totaling a half-million dollars, according to investigators.
Joshua A. Knight, 38, of Kennesaw worked as the account supervisor for Infomart, a Marietta company that specializes in corporate background checks. He wasn’t authorized to write checks to himself, his arrest warrant states.
But according to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office, Knight wrote himself dozens of checks between January 2018 and September 2019.
“Said accused deposited 130 Infomart, Inc. business checks in the total amount of $587,826.10 into his personal Bank of America account,” Knight’s arrest warrant states.
Last week, Knight was charged with one count of theft by conversion, greater than $1,500.
On Monday, Knight was arrested at his home and booked into the Cobb jail. He was being held late Tuesday on $500,000 bond, jail records showed.
