MCLENNAN COUNTY - A 49-year-old man accused of embezzling $825,500 from his St. Louis employer has been arrested in Central Texas and is being held in the McLennan County Jail.

Joel Todd Wishne faces a federal charge of wire fraud and is being held on a federal detainer.

Wishne was a founding and managing member of a company called SafeVision and served as the accountant for the company. SafeVision sells and distributes eyewear products.

Wishne was responsible for running the day-to-day operations, which included handling the money they received, as well as dealing with the company's expenses.

According to the complaint, Wishne inflated expenses and underreported income the company received in order to hide the estimated $825,500 he is accused of stealing over a three year period.

As part of their investigation, the FBI tracked one wire transfer of money from the SafeVision account. Authorities are not sure why Wishne was in Central Texas.
