ONTARIO – Payroll records for Fry Foods showed Jose Flores getting pay on June 19 of $1,274.46.

But that wasn’t right, according to a recent court filing in Boise.

Flores hadn’t worked for the company for a month, and received his final pay two weeks earlier.

And the paycheck itself wasn’t made out to Flores.

The payee instead was Douglas Arnold Wold – then Fry Foods’ local human resources director, according to the court record.

The check, Fry Foods later maintained in its court filing, was a fraud.
