A Providence man is accused of stealing nearly $35,000 from his Cranston-based employer.

Jason D. Boudreau, 39, of 90 Lindy Ave., is charged with embezzlement over $1,500, according to Rhode Island State Police. He was arrested by members of the Financial Crimes Unit and arraigned in Third Division District Court, where he was released on $20,000 personal recognizance.

According to police, an investigation was initiated after the owner of the HVAC company with which Boudreau was employed as controller made a complaint. Police allege Boudreau used his position to prepare fraudulent payroll journals and obtain unauthorized bonuses totaling $34,826.11.

Boudreau faces the possibility of tens of thousands of dollars in fines and up to 20 years in prison.
