HOLLYWOOD — condo manager who allegedly embezzled nearly a quarter of a million dollars from a Hollywood Beach homeowners association was in Broward County circuit court for the first time Friday after police said she fled across the state.
Kristin Glansen, 35, pleaded not guilty to the allegation that she stole $228,000 in an embezzlement scheme from The Waterway condominium on Hollywood Beach, where she was entrusted as manager. After her plea, she had no comment as she shielded her face from a Local 10 News camera on her way out of the courtroom.
|With a grand theft warrant out for her arrest, Glansen moved across the state to Clearwater, where she rented a home in that city’s historic district. After just a couple days in her home, her landlord, who asked that she not be named, became suspicious. The landlord said she did a Google search of Glansen and saw a Local 10 story reporting that Glansen was wanted by police, so she promptly called authorities, who quickly made the arrest.
“I’m glad they caught her,” Jorge Quiros said. “I just couldn’t believe that she was able to take the money so easily and disappear like that.” Read more:
