Corry City Police recently filed charges against a local man who allegedly took almost $5,000 from a Corry business where he was previously the manager.

After investigating a four-month period in late 2019, police allege Eric A. Burdine, 31, of Spartansburg, stole $4,993.99 in cash from House of Television, located at 506 E. Columbus Ave.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with the police criminal complaint, a district manager for House of Television went to the city police station in mid-December to report an employee theft by Burdine, who was the store manager during the four-month period.

The district manager prepared an audit of petty cash from August to November of 2019 that showed Burdine, who was identified by his own unique pin number, had stolen $4,993.99 during that time, the affidavit states.

Police charged Burdine, who is no longer an employee of House of Television, via summons with three third-degree felonies - theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and theft by failure to make required disposition of funds.

He will answer to the charges during a preliminary hearing before District Judge Denise Buell at a later date. A hearing had not been scheduled as of this morning.
