Cass County Sheriff Joseph M. Underwood Jr. reports that his office was contacted by Nate Wines of Dowagiac in regard to one of its salesmen possibly embezzling money.
A month-long investigation led investigators to uncover evidence that Dan Collins, 45, had allegedly embezzled money from the sale of wine from the company. The activity took place from mid-2006 to November 2010.
The exact amount of money that Collins received from this crime is still being investigated.
Collins was arrested Dec. 17 on the charge of embezzlement over $100,000. He was arraigned on that date in Cass County Fourth District Court; he is currently released on a $50,000 bond set at that hearing.
Anyone with information regarding this crime should contact Det. Kristen Daly at (269) 445-1244.
