A Bismarck man faces a felony charge on accusations he stole more than $75,000 from his former employer by adjusting his monthly bonuses.

Douglas Pete Miller, 40, was charged Sept. 25 with Class B felony misapplication of entrusted property. He made his initial court appearance on Tuesday, where South Central District Judge Gail Hagerty set his bond at $1,000. Miller has posted the bond. His next court hearing is scheduled for Oct. 31.
According to court documents, Miller was the manager at Dakota Family Dental. During a salary review, officials there discovered Miller had been altering his monthly bonus from July 2008 to February 2013, with a total amount of loss to the company of $76,201.97.

Documents say Miller was fired and later was asked to repay the money. He wrote a check for $20,158.97, and his parents wrote one for $64,000, an affidavit said.
