A business on the Calhoun County line near Eastaboga reported $25,000 in fraudulent charges on a company credit card last week, according to a report filed by the Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Deputy Jon Garlick said a company called Max Holdings reported the alleged theft of $25,000 by a contractor who worked with the company. The contractor reportedly had access to a company credit card account and ordered $25,000 in auto parts that never arrived.

Deputies did not release the exact address of the business, a report lists it as being on Mudd Street in Lincoln. Mudd Street marks the Calhoun/Talladega county line between Eastaboga and Lincoln. It’s unclear whether Max Holdings is a business on that street or the owner of an enterprise doing business under a different name on Mudd Street.

The alleged theft was reported on Thursday, according to a report by deputies.

Garlick said deputies have a suspect but are not releasing the suspect’s name because the matter is still under investigation.
