Anniston police today were investigating a theft from an Anniston business in which $50,000 was reported stolen in January.

Employees with the company, on the 5100 block of Bains Gap Road, discovered the missing funds through an audit, according to Anniston police Sgt. Chris Sparks.

According to a police report, $37,000 worth of unauthorized checks were cashed and $13,000 worth of fraudulent transactions were made through the company’s credit cards between Jan. 1 and Jan. 16.

Suspects have been identified, according to Sparks, but he declined to release further information about them, citing the pending investigation.

Any suspect could face felony charges of first-degree theft and fraudulent use of credit cards, according to a police report.
