(Aurora, Ind.) – A former Aurora EMT charged with Theft has been ordered held on a $200,000 bond.

Craig Whitham, 42, vanished on February 24 after being confronted about his alleged theft of more than $106,000 from Aurora Emergency Rescue. He was treasurer for the non-profit organization.

After weeks on the lam, Whitham turned himself in to police on March 16.

Dearborn Circuit Court Judge Jamed D. Humphrey ordered Whitham held on a bond of $200,000 surety and $5,000 cash bond during Whitham’s March 18th initial appearance in court. The judge set the high bond after citing Whitham’s risk of fleeing the law again.

Whitham is charged with Theft (level 5 felony). A pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for May 10.
