Note To Self: Don't Steal Money From Work To Pay Gambling Debt

An accounting supervisor in El Cajon Superior Court stole court fees and fines that could total hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past 10 to 15 years to support a gambling habit and took or destroyed court files to cover his tracks, prosecutors said yesterday.

“He would take the cash and there was no way to trace it,” prosecutor Mike Still said in San Diego Superior Court yesterday.

David Anthony Macias, 47, pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of stealing more than $60,000 in cash, checks and credit-card receipts over the weekend of Jan. 20.

Still said the weekend theft was a small share of what Macias allegedly took over a decade or more. The money was used to cover gambling losses that reached up to $1,500 every other day at Barona Casino, where Macias “was known as a big-time gambler,” the prosecutor said.

The prosecutor said Macias would play poker and other card games at the casino, betting $100 to $150 a hand.
