Arrest made in 2009 theft case

— The Steamboat Springs Police Department on Wednesday made an arrest in a felony theft case from 2009.

In March 2009, a judge signed off on an arrest warrant for Daniel Marcus Williams, 36. The three felony charges were theft, theft by receiving and unauthorized use of a financial device.

Williams had worked at the Re/Max Steamboat real estate office as an office manager until he was terminated.

According to the arrest affidavit, the new office manager discovered Williams had used a company credit card or company accounts to buy more than $4,000 worth of merchandise for himself.

The new office manager told police Williams was supposed to get permission from an owner before buying anything.

The purchases included a $1,100 40-inch TV, a $738 laptop and digital cameras.

After the theft was reported, police went to Williams’ residence and learned Williams had gone to New York after getting fired.

Williams left some of his belongings, and police seized nine items they believed Williams had fraudulently purchased, according to the warrant.
