Ex-office manager charged with swindling Roseau auto dealer
GRAND FORKS -- Lee Sorenson, the owner of a Roseau dealership, admits he's not a bookkeeper. That's why he had his office manager, Jeffery Rigstad.
"I said 'You know, we'll be fine -- you take care of the bookkeeping, and I'll take care of the sales part," Sorenson said.
But in December 2008, Sorenson said, he discovered that Rigstad, an employee for 23 years, had stolen tens of thousands of dollars from the business and promptly fired him.
