A Sunrise Beach man who was charged with stealing more than $25,000 was booked into the Camden County Jail on Thursday.

Douglas Miller, 53, is being held at the Camden County Jail on a $70,000 bond. A court date has not been set.

According to a heavily redacted probable cause statement, a victim paid $70,000 to Miller’s business, Paint Pros LLC, with two separate bank drafts. The first payment to Miller was made on Jan. 13 and the victim provided law enforcement with the cashier’s check made payable to the business, the statement says.

The second payment to the business was made on Feb. 20, according to the statement.

Miller allegedly told law enforcement that he used the money to pay other financial obligations, the statement says.

He was also charged in July with felony passing a bad check. A disposition hearing is set for 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20.

According to a probable cause statement, Miller passed a bad check that totaled $4,900 on Feb. 26 that was drawn on Arvest Bank. The check was accepted by the victim, who had the information required to identify the person who passed the check, the statement says. The check was returned for insufficient funds on March 8, the statement says.

Miller was notified about the returned check on April 6, June 5 and June 7, and the check was not paid, the statement says.

According to the probable cause statement, Miller was on probation from a 2022 charge. Court records indicate that Miller pleaded guilty on Oct. 5, 2022, to drug possession and first-degree tampering with a motor vehicle. He was sentenced to five years of probation, with a suspended sentence of 10 years in the Department of Corrections.
