Dothan, AL (WTVY)-- A Santa Rosa Beach, Florida man has been charged with stealing from several ATM's, including some in Houston County.

56-year old Richard Earl McWilliams, in his job, was responsible for loading cash into 42 ATM's.

“The company owner became suspicious when monitoring error alerts indicated there was low to no cash in several of (them),” the Florida Department of Law Enforcement said in a release.

A audit revealed that approximately $102,000 was missing. The FDLE also claims records show McWilliams deposited most or all of that money in his bank account between January 2017 and June 2018.

Besides Houston County, McWilliams is accused of stealing funds from ATM's in Okaloosa, Bay, Walton and Franklin Counties in Florida.

He faces one count of organized fraud.
