Hobbs Man Charged With Computer Access to Defraud, Embezzle

Staff Report

HOBBS, N.M. - A Hobbs man thought he cheated the system but it eventually caught up to him.

Jose Candia is charged with computer access to defraud and embezzle.

With the help of a credit union employee, police noticed Candia was continuously making ATM withdrawals on an overdrawn account.

How was he able to do it? ATM machines go through internal audits and are down during that time.

While the machine is down, customers are allowed to withdraw the maximum amount of money.

We're told there may be others involved in this case.
