Albany --  Jimbo Adams and Christopher Weaver were arraigned Tuesday morning at the Dougherty County Jail. As of noon, they were still in jail.

Adams is charged with one count of racketeering, 37 counts of theft by taking and one count of criminal conspiracy theft by taking. Adams bond was set at $49,500.

Weaver, who owns On Site Wireless, is charged with two counts of racketeering, 37 counts of theft by taking and one count of criminal conspiracy theft by taking. His bond was set at $59,500.

Back in 2000, shortly after Adams was named Vice President of Alltel in Albany the D. A. says he conspired with Weaver to send all wireless car installs to Weaver's business.

The state says Weaver also sent fraudulent bills for work never done to Adams and Adams signed off on the payments and the two split the profits.

A civil suit has also been filed against the two to recoup the stolen funds.
