An Adrian man embezzles nearly $400,000 from his former employer

unclaimed money.

A former executive with an auto parts maker that was sued for defaulting on millions of dollars in loans has been charged with embezzling about $390,000 from the company.

Donald G. Johnston was arraigned Friday in Lenawee County District court on 22 felony charges of embezzlement and criminal use of a computer. Judge Natalia M. Koselka released him on a personal bond and scheduled a preliminary hearing for July 6.

Kecy Products Inc. of Hudson, located 60 miles southwest of Detroit, fired the 46-year-old Johnston on Feb. 19. A Toledo, Ohio, bank sued the metal stamping company that month for allegedly defaulting on loans totaling $8.7 million.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian says Johnston will be assigned a public defender if he can't hire his own attorney by Wednesday.
