On Monday two men pleaded guilty to stealing more than $100,000 from a local airport.
Former airport administrator Alex Nelson wasn't talking after pleading guilty to three felonies in federal court Monday in Asheville.
When asked if he was involved in embezzlement at the airport, Nelson responded with "I really don't have anything to say."
According to court documents, he and operations manager Bradley Adkins diverted checks made out to the airport into accounts controlled by the pair.
"I'm in here for what I didn't do, not for what I've done," said Adkins.
Minutes after pleading guilty to public corruption, conspiracy and embezzlement charges, Adkins agreed to talk about the case.
Adkins and Nelson were raised by the same mother, but no longer talk to each other after the federal investigation.
"I'm just hoping all the truth comes out. You know it is not something I did," said Adkins.
Adkins wouldn't talk about the details of the case but we learned Monday that Nelson is also accused of stealing money from airport customers by running their payments through a personal credit card machine that he had hooked up.
The money ended up in a bank account set up by Adkins. Some of the money was used for a Key West condo, to build an in-ground pool, and to buy party pontoon boat.
As much as $120,000 dollars is missing.
Nelson and Adkins will be back in court later this year for sentencing.
