A Green Bay man is facing a felony charge of theft in a business setting for allegedly stealing nearly $10,000 from Annie’s Campground near the village of Gresham while he worked there last year.

John J. Wauters, 45, was hired in March of last year to set up a point-of-sale software program for the campground and was the sole administrator for the program.

The criminal complaint alleges Wauters used the program to divert $9,698 from the campground’s funds for his own use between March and September.

The funds were taken out in the form of cash from the campground itself by the issuance of refunds for no cause, according to the complaint.

Wauters could face a maximum six years in prison and $10,000 fine if convicted.

He is due in court for an initial appearance on June 11.
