A former bookkeeper is accused of defrauding the Kingsland Ocala Waterway Homeowners Association out of more than $11,000 over four years.
Debby Lee Underwood, 44, of Ocala, was arrested Wednesday on a fraud charge, according to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office. She was booked into the jail at 5:13 p.m. and released at 12:35 a.m. Thursday on a $2,000 bond.
She could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
In late January, a sheriff’s deputy went to 7500 SW 61st Ave. after receiving a call about a fraud. He talked with the office manager for Kingsland Ocala Waterway Homeowners Association. The woman said she had been reviewing bank deposits from 2014 and discovered that deposits made by Underwood were inaccurate. The woman said she was still reviewing the documents and would call again when she was finished.
Detective Craig Evans got the call last month, according to his report. The office manager had documents that she believed showed Underwood defrauding the association. Read more:
