Residents of west Toledo's Lincolnshire neighborhood are upset after a police report has surfaced alleging a member of the neighborhood association stole from its members.
A report filed by the association's board of trustees claims former association treasurer Peter Williamson stole more than $70,000 from the association's accounts between 2011 and August of 2012, when he resigned. Residents say just three days after Williamson's resignation they received a letter requesting they pay an additional $100 in neighborhood dues in order to pay for pool repairs. The cost of those repairs, residents say, was suspiciously similar to the amount missing.
"The report says that there's 70 thousand dollars missing. And there seems to be no answers from the trustees and the other members of the association," said one association member who did not wish to be identified. "We started putting 2 and 2 together. I mean at first everybody was kind of like, what's going on here, why do they need money? We just paid our dues."
Trustees say that an investigation into the matter is ongoing, and that the cost of pool repairs was separate from what had been stolen.
