LIMA — Details of how the Menards manager in court for stealing thousands from his own store managed to do so emerged Friday.



The former manager of Menards used other workers to process returns for him in a plot to pocket thousands of dollars in bogus returns, a detective said.



Timothy Bart would ask other managers to process a return. They were instructed to leave the money in an envelope so it would be ready for when the customer came back with the item. But there were no customer returning items, said Allen County Sheriff Det. Mark Baker.



“Since he was the manager of the store, no one would question him,” Baker said. “He ended up pocketing the money.”



Baker was in court at Bart’s preliminary hearing Friday. Bart waived the hearing, sending the case to the grand jury for consideration.



Bart is charged with felony theft. Baker said he stole $22,155 from Menards between July 2012 and mid-January. Another employee caught onto Bart’s scam, Baker said.



Bart worked for Menards for 20 years but was experiencing personal financial problems in the past year or so, Baker said.



Bart has confessed to the crime, Baker said.
