A man who was accused of stealing $70,000 in Camden County has now been charged with stealing in Morgan County.

Douglas Miller, 53, has been charged in Morgan County with stealing $750 or more. A warrant was ordered and a $9,000 bond was set. He is currently being held at the Camden County Jail on a $50,000 bond, according to court records. Camden County online jail records list the bond at $150,000.

In Camden County, Miller is charged with stealing $25,000 or more. He was also charged in another case with passing a bad check. A preliminary hearing for both cases is set for 9 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 11.

According to the probable cause statement for the Morgan County, the Laurie Police Department was contacted on Oct. 17 about a case involving stealing. A woman had allegedly told law enforcement that she hired Miller to do construction work and had given him three credit cards and a check for $500 and work was never completed, the statement says.

The statement says the woman received credit card statements that totaled more than $8,100 and included charges for Halloween inflatables.

Miller was interviewed on Nov. 29 at the Camden County jail and claimed another person had the credit cards, according to the statement. The officer had asked Miller if he spent money not owed to him and Miller allegedly said yes, but denied stealing, according to the statement.

Police allegedly made several attempts to contact the person named by Miller, the statement says.

In the case where he is charged with stealing more than $25,000, a victim paid $70,000 to Miller’s business, Paint Pros LLC, according to a probable cause statement. Miller allegedly told law enforcement that he used the money to pay other financial obligations, the statement says.
