ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A former St. Cloud Area School District employee is facing a charge of felony theft for allegedly stealing some of the district's rebate cards.

Bryan James Brown, Supervisor of Buildings, Grounds, and Safety, resigned on March 23rd after allegedly admitting to the district's human services director that he stole $115.46 worth of Menard’s rebates.

Investigators say the district would put some rebates in the 53-year-old St. Cloud man’s name and he was responsible for getting them to other departments when they needed to purchase supplies.

He allegedly admitted to spending the rebates on personal expenses.

Court files indicate that Brown said it was a “stupid mistake”, he accepted full responsibility, and knows he put the district in a “bad spot”.

Police say the thefts occurred between September 15th, 2016, and March 15th.

A summon has been issued for him to make his first court appearance on the charge on November 6th.

Brown worked for the district for 27 years starting in 1990 as a custodian.
