STUTTGART, Germany (AP) _ Criminal charges have been filed against a former DaimlerChrysler AG employee suspected of claiming money from the company for construction work that wasn't performed, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

The man, whose name was not released, was charged with breach of trust for allegedly embezzling more than three million euros (US$4 million) between 1997 and 2004, said Bettina Vetter, a prosecutor in Stuttgart, the southern German city where the company is headquartered.

The suspect, who headed a building department, is accused of having an architect forge invoices for work that was never carried out. Two architects have been charged as accessories in the case, Vetter said.

A date for the trial was not immediately set.
