It’s not to the level of Dixon but a major embezzlement arrest has been made involving a country club in Yorkville.

The La Salle County Sheriff’s Office arrested 50-year-old James Campbell of Sandwich on Wednesday. He’s charged with 20 counts of theft, and single counts of burglary, computer fraud and forgery.

Campbell is accused of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from business proceeds at the Blackberry Oaks Golf Course in Yorkville. Investigators say they first heard about the alleged embezzlement in January.

Campbell is out of custody after posting $10,000 bond.
