Recently, Scott Tolhurst, 51, appeared in Tanunda District Court, where he was charged with 15 counts of theft and one count of deception.

Police say Tolhurst received nearly $6 million in alcohol payments in 2018, but he did not make the alcohol available to his victims.

In July of this year, agents of the Serious and Organized Financial Crimes Investigation Unit arrested him.
