VERNON, Wis. – A 46-year-old Greendale man is expected in court July 15 to answer charges that he stole money from Top 100 dealer Road, Track and Trail while working at the dealership late last year and early this year.

The business reported an employee theft to the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department earlier this year after more than $10,000 from the sale of a motorcycle and a snowmobile went missing, along with the papework, a complaint states.

Timothy J. Lhuillier was charged July 5 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, according to the Greendale Patch.

Lhuillier, then the finance manager, denied involvement in the thefts but admitted to taking $2,000 from another customer as payment for the layaway of a motorcycle, according to local authorities. He reportedly  told detectives he put the cash deposits in an envelope in a lockbox in the manager’s office, according to the complaint.

Road Track and Trail is a Dealernews Top 100 Dealer for 2013.
