A Decatur County man is charged with fraud and theft after altering company invoices for personal gain.

Decatur County Investigators say Eric Hyatt was arrested November 30th after his company, BASF, reported the 55-year-old to authorities for fraudulently changing invoices.

Officials say Wyatt stole funds from the German chemical company for more than 5 years to buy personal items, including a motorcycle, and an engine for his plane worth $37,000.

The DCSO says deputies searched Hyatt's home Friday (12/3) and seized over $100,000 worth of goods.

They say he now faces further charges including tampering with evidence.
