ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 Investigators now believe the amount of money they say a theater manager stole from Wynnsong Cinemas is much larger than first estimated.     

28-year-old Seth Donnelly is charged with three counts of computer theft.   Prosecutors plan to charge him under racketeering statutes.     

Police say he used a register code linked directly to him to refund a large number of tickets and then took the money.     

Investigators initially estimated the amount at $36,000.  Now they say it may be tens of thousands more.   

"We anticipate there will be more money found in terms of what was allegedly taken.  In addition to those amounts already allegedly charged in the current warrants," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.     

Investigators believe the thefts began in March.   Carmike Cinemas' home office has not responded to our calls to determine if Donnelly is still employed with the company.
