Rhode Island State Police said Friday that 54-year-old Timothy Roche was arrested and charged with embezzlement over $100.
Authorities said they began investigating after getting a complaint from the Newport Bay Club Homeowners Association, which is a timeshare development. Police allege that Roche issued 34 unauthorized checks, totaling $527,934, for his personal benefit between July 2008 and January 2013.
No one answered Friday at a telephone listing in Roche’s name. Roche was arraigned and released on $1,000 personal recognizance. He’s due back in court on Oct. 23.
