ALAMANCE COUNTY, N.C. — A Burlington man is accused of stealing $1,750 in client payments from a bail bond office with which he was formerly employed, according to a news release from deputies.

Anthony Miller, 44, is suspected of pocketing the payments from a single client while working for Dexter R. Shoffner Bail Bonds between April and September this year, deputies said.

The sheriff’s office began investigating after receiving a report on Nov. 17 from Amy Holt, the daughter of Dexter Shoffner. Deputies said Shoffner died in March and left his business to his daughter. Holt filed the report after the client informed her of the missing payments, which she said she was unaware of, deputies said.

Miller was charged with obtaining property by false pretense. He was given a $2,500 unsecured bond. A mugshot was not available.
