APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - An Appleton area man is scheduled to go on trial March 27th for allegedly stealing about $1.5 million from a business he owned.
57-year-old David Moser owned Elite Power Products, a company that made fire protection equipment.
Prosecutors said he failed to deliver fire trucks that were paid for by various communities from Wisconsin to New York. Authorities said Moser also wrote checks to companies in Marshfield and Green Bay for fire truck parts – and he then stopped payments on those checks.
Prosecutors said he used the money to buy vacations, spa treatments, a yacht, jewelry, and Botox among other things.
Investigators said they confronted Moser in 2009 – and he denied using any business funds for his own use.
Moser is charged in Outagamie County with one felony embezzlement count. He’s due back in court February 18th. The March trial was scheduled to last for two days.
