A man in Lawrenceburg has been arrested for reportedly stealing more than $17,000 worth of gas.

Gregory Svetkovich, 27, was taken into custody by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Friday following an investigation that started in January.

He has been charged with one count of theft over $10,000.

Authorities said Svetkovich stole 4,772.6 gallons of fuel from his former employer Doss Brothers Inc., which cost the company an estimated $17,654.13.

He stopped working for the business in 2012, but kept a company gas key that he used to purchase fuel.

Svetkovich was booked into the Lawrence County Jail Friday. He was released after posting $10,000 bond.
