A: If you are reporting a crime, you need to contact your local law enforcement agency.

To quickly answer your question, ANYONE can commit fraud. I expect you have more details about what exactly it is that your manager is doing but just because someone is authorized to use a credit card, doesn't mean that they cannot commit fraud.

A: I agree with Mr. Divelbiss. Whether somebody can be charged with fraud depends on the entire facts of the case. If you believe that you are the victim of a crime, then you should contact your local law enforcement agency and report it.
