Albany -- Another suspect in a huge Albany embezzlement case is in jail. That leaves three people on the run.

Fifty-one-year-old Becky Gilliland was caught at her house in Hahira Thursday night. She is the daughter of the accused mastermind, Anne Williamson.

Gilliland, a Lowndes County DFACS employee, is one of eight people charged in a scam to defraud an elderly Albany woman of more than one million dollars. Gilliland joins her mother and her brother, Dan Daniell, in the Dougherty County jail. Also still jailed is SOWEGA Council on Aging employee Jerrie Berry.

Dan Daniell's Wife, Cyndi Powell Daniell, was released from jail Wednesday afternoon because she's in a wheelchair and has an infant son.

Police are still looking for three other people, all relatives of Anne Williamson. Prosecutors say Anne Williamson, who was the legal guardian for 82-year old Ima Rude, stole more than one million dollars from Rude and shared the money with her children.

Two of the wanted family members are believed to be hiding in New Jersey.
