HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An employee for an armored car company is accused of grabbing handfuls of cash for himself from ATM machines that was in charge of filling with money.
Last week, a federal grant jury indicted Steven Dagli, alleging that the 68-year-old Alewa Heights resident took more than $73,000 from four ATM machines over a three-year period.
Dagli allegedly skimmed money in amounts ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 from ATM machines serviced by his employer, Security Armored Car Service of Hawaii.
The machines are owned by Hickam Federal Credit Union and are located in Pearlridge Center, Mililani and Hickam Air Force Base.
Sources said Dagli's alleged scheme went undetected for years. But it unraveled last year when his employer conducted an audit after one of the machines ran out of money when it shouldn't have.
Sources said the actual amount allegedly taken by Dagli could be as high as $164,000.
His former employer, Security Armored, has paid back the Hickam Credit Union for the money allegedly stolen. Dagli's attorney couldn't be reached for comment.
