Housing Authority property manager accused of stealing checks meant for Atlantic City tenants
A Pleasantville Housing Authority property manager was arrested Wednesday morning for allegedly stealing $826 in HUD checks — and a $9.39 toilet seat.
Cheryl Bradshaw, 59, of Atlantic City, is charged with official misconduct and theft of checks issued to tenants of the Barlinvis Apartments in Atlantic City, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner said.
Bradshaw turned herself in to the Prosecutor’s Office in Mays Landing, and was released after being issued a summons.
Bradshaw cashed 13 checks intended for nine tenants of the apartment complex in Atlantic City, where she was property manager, according to the charges. The checks were funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development meant to offset utility costs.
Bradshaw is also accused of stealing a $9.39 toilet seat from the Atlantic County Improvement Authority, and having it installed in her own home.
She was fired Feb. 2. She is scheduled to appear in Atlantic County Superior Court on May 10.
Official misconduct is a second-degree crime that carries a potential sentence of five to 10 years. The third-degree theft charge carries a potential sentence of three to five years.
