Man indicted for stealing money from ATM's

A man is accused of stealing $471,110 from local ATMs.

A Fayette county grand jury had indicted 32-year-old Jason Cornwell on 4 counts of theft by unlawful taking.

The Herald-Leader reports Cornwell took the money while working for ATM Solutions, a company that stocks and repairs ATMs. The alleged thefts took place at eight Community Trust Bank machines in Fayette, Woodford and Clark counties between July 2008 and February 2009.

No charges have been filed in Woodford or Clark counties.

In February Cornwell was arrested by Lexington police, accused of keeping $471,110 that he was supposed to put in ATM's.

WKYT 27 Newsfirst did try to contact Cornwell on his previous work cell phone number, but it has been given to someone else in the company. Although Cornwell still has a voicemail system set up with ATM Solutions, where he was a regional manager, he is no longer employed with the company.

Neighbors tell 27 Newsfirst he is no longer residing at his home in Nicholasville. They say he and his wife moved out several months ago.

He is charged with four counts of theft by unlawful taking. 27 Newsfirst is told a warrant has been issued by Lexington Police for Jason Cornwell for the new charges he is facing. He is expected to be in mid-September to appear before a judge.
