ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The man being called the leader in a plot to steal Albany taxpayer's money has yet to turn himself in to authorities.
As of 11 p.m. Sunday there was still no sign of the newly-indicted Don Buie. The fired Albany Downtown Manager, his wife Shanon, his ex-girlfriend Nicole Brown and former Downtown Dollar Square owner Tim Washington were all named in a 17-count indictment last week.
Brown and Washington both turned themselves in last week and bonded out.
Buie told the Georgia Bureau of Investigation he would return to Albany from Baltimore this weekend to surrender.
He's charged with writing at least 8 ADICA checks to his wife Shanon for more than $2,000 total and one for more than $2,000 to Nicole Brown.
