A former employee of the Indiana Gazette has been charged with illegally using company cars and a gasoline debit card for trips to northeastern Pennsylvania, Indiana Borough police said.

Justin J. Lloyd, 24, of Indiana was arraigned Wednesday on charges of burglary, theft, criminal trespass, unauthorized use of an automobile and criminal mischief in Indiana District Judge Guy Haberl's office.

Lloyd went into the newspaper office on Water Street on Sept. 7 and Oct. 7 and stole keys to vehicles owned by the company, police allege. He used the vehicles to make trips to Wilkes-Barre, along the way using a company gasoline card to pay for his fill-ups, police said.

He was working for the newspaper when he made the first trip. He was not an employee on the second excursion, police said.

Lloyd confessed, police said.

He is free on $10,000 unsecured bond and faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 1.
