MIAMI (AP) — Several current and former board members on one of Florida’s largest homeowners associations have been charged with stealing more than $2 million of residents’ money.
The HOA oversees 40 communities and over 6,500 units in West Kendall, located southwest of Miami.
A significant part of the investigation centered around board members writing checks, in some cases for hundreds of thousands of dollars, to vendors for services that weren’t actually being provided, prosecutors said.
Residents have been fighting for years to get rid of Gallego and the board members who support her, the Miami Herald reported.
Court and jail records didn’t immediately list attorneys for Gallego’s husband or the other board members. »
