BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Deputies say an employee at the Renaissance hotel in Baton Rouge is accused of stealing more than $34,000 from hotel safe deposits and altering financial records to cover his tracks.
East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies issued an arrest warrant for 38-year-old Matthew D. Dziadosz on one count of felony theft.
Detectives began an inquiry in June after an internal audit turned up discrepancies in the hotel's deposits and accounting records.
The Advocate reports hotel management declined to comment on the case.
To further conceal the scheme, deputies say Dziadosz also is accused of falsely inflating the hotel's reward point system, a program that allows guests to redeem points for services.
It was unclear whether Dziadosz has an attorney.
