By the time he realized it was missing, it had been used six times, according to court records.

Thomas, a night cleaner at the Holiday Inn, had been on-duty that night, and allegedly used the card to make two purchases, totaling $175, at Wal-Mart and four purchases, totaling $136, at Casey's General Store.

On Thursday, District Judge Lisa Borgen issued a summons for Thomas to appear in court on Aug. 11.
