Almost new Cadillac, Audi, Corvette seized from embattled Alabama private eye
The seizure came late last week after authorities previously found nearly $50,000 in Robison’s home and froze his bank accounts. Robison is charged with five Theft by Deception charges, alleging he took thousands from clients without performing the promised work.
NEWTON, Ala. (WTVY) -Dothan police seized several high-end cars and other vehicles from an embattled private investigator and his immediate family, including two almost new Cadillacs, a Corvette, and an Audi, according to court documents.
The seizure at William “Bill” Robison’s home---and possibly other locations---came late last week after authorities previously found nearly $50,000 in Robison’s home and Houston County Circuit Judge Maurice “John-John” Steensland froze his bank accounts.
Robison, arrested Monday, is charged with five Theft by Deception counts alleging he took thousands from clients without performing the promised investigative work.
Since his arrest prosecuting attorneys and police say they have received numerous complaints from others who also claim Robison bilked them.
The following items are on the seizure list:
2023 Audi Q8
2023 Corvette Stingray
2023 Cadillac Escalade
2015 Jeep Wrangler
2 Yamaha Wavrunners
Ranger Z 519 boat with Mercury Pro X 225 engine
EZ Go golf cart
2018 Honda Rincon ATV
Attorney Shaun McGhee, who represents Bill Robison, did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
Court documents show that McGhee is asking Judge Steensland to unfreeze enough funds in Robison’s bank account to pay McGhee, who seeks a hearing on the matter.
