Raymond Gonzalez, 62, of Hasbrouck Heights was arrested and charged with Theft by Deception and Forgery according to an announcement by Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal Tuesday. Gonzalez’ arrest was the result of an investigation by members of the Bergen County Financial Crimes Unit under the direction of Chief Robert Anziliotti.
According to the announcement, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office received a complaint in March 2016, that Gonzalez, the owner and operator of RPM Management had illegally access and stolen funds from a Bergen County condo association’s bank accounts.
The investigation by Bergen County Prosecutor’s Financial Crimes Unit determined that between 2011 and 2016, Gonzalez had illegally accessed a line of credit account for the condo association, transferring them into his management company and had used them for his personal benefit. Additionally, he is being charged with having forged signatures of two of the condo association board members in effort to write fraudulent checks from the account.
The total theft, prosecutors allege, was in excess of $100,000 over the five year period.
Gonzalez was arrested on Tuesday and charged with one count of Theft by Deception and two counts of Forgery, each a 3rd degree crime. He was released after being served with a Complaint-Summons, and is scheduled to appear in Bergen County Central Judicial Processing Court for his first appearance on September 6, at 8:30 a.m.
