No charges in Cobb HOA embezzlement


 By Andrew Spencer

Homeowners in Austell want to know why the former HOA officers aren’t facing any criminal charges.

“They don’t want to see their money just get tossed like this,” says current Ewing Downs homeowners association secretary James Nicholson. He believes the former officers were embezzling money from the association.

Nicholson tells Channel 2 Action News the new board was looking over the HOA’s bank account.

“While we were doing that, the bank representative who was helping us noticed it right off,” says Nicholson. “She told us. She said, ‘These guys are stealing from you.'”

The ledger shows about $5,000 in charges for clothes, gas, groceries, and even a bus ticket.

Weeks after the discover, Nicholson says no charges have been filed.

The Cobb County Sheriff’s Office says there is still an active and ongoing investigation into the alleged embezzlement at Ewing Downs.
