A Fort Wayne man is accused of stealing more than $2,500 worth of clothes from a department store while giving his friends $30,000 worth of discounts.
On Tuesday, Allen County prosecutors formally charged Michael T. Klopfenstein, 21, with one felony count of theft.
Klopfenstein worked at Jos. A. Bank at Jefferson Pointe for less than a year between 2012 and 2013.
According to court documents, during that time, he would wear clothes out of the store or take them home in bags.
He also gave friends discounts estimated to total $30,000, court documents said.
Klopfenstein admitted the theft to a store regional manager and then a Fort Wayne police detective, according to court records.
He had not been arrested Tuesday, according to jail records, but his warrant calls for him to be released on his own recognizance when that happens.
