Albany   --  An Albany 911 Dispatcher has been arrested for stealing a computer from the emergency center.  

Twenty-five-year-old Alisa Williams was charged with theft by taking Tuesday night.

Investigators say a city desktop computer and an LCD monitor, worth $978, was missing.  It was part of the new training equipment that the 911 center just installed for emergency preparedness and training.

An investigation pointed to Williams, and the missing equipment was found.   "Late yesterday afternoon we exercised a search warrant of her property, at which time we located city property inside her apartment.  Subsequently we arrested her for theft by taking last night," said Albany Fire Chief James Carswell.

Williams had worked for the city for almost two years.  She was charged with theft, and the paperwork has begun to fire her from her job.
