A 46-year-old Greendale man, whose court records shows a series of criminal and financial troubles, is accused of bilking a Waukesha County business out of more than $10,000.
Timothy J. Lhuillier was charged Friday in Waukesha County Circuit Court with three counts of theft from a business – two felonies and one misdemeanor. He faces up to 5-1/4 years in jail if convicted.
Waukesha County deputies began investigating Lhuillier after an employee theft was reported at Road, Track and Trail, W228-S6832 Enterprise Drive, Town of Vernon.
Lhuillier was working at the store as the financial manager in December and January when a snowmobile and a motorcycle were sold. The separate transactions totaled more than $10,000, but after the customers picked up the items, the money was missing and the paperwork showed the purchased items were still in inventory. Additionally, the files with information about the sales was no longer found, the complaint states.
Another customer reported paying more than $2,000 in cash to Lhuillier as part of a “layaway” plan for the purchase of a motorcycle. That cash was also not found, the complaint states.
Lhuillier denied involvement in the thefts, but admitted to taking payments for the layaway of the motorcycle. However, he told authorities he put the cash deposits in an envelope in a lockbox in the manager’s office, according to the complaint.
Lhuillier is scheduled to appear in court on July 15.
