Rockingham County sheriff’s deputies arrested the president of Broadway’s Heritage Villas Homeowners’ Association last week.
Kimberley Kenyon, 40, of 123 Alger Lane, Broadway, was charged on June 10 with four felony counts of writing bad checks and two felony counts of obtaining money by false pretenses. Additional charges could be filed, deputies say.
The investigation into Kenyon began on June 6, when an investigator with the county sheriff’s department spoke with a Harrisonburg police officer about two bad checks that First Bank and Trust reported to city police. The officers reported that Kenyon wrote checks against a closed account belonging to the homeowners’ association.
“After obtaining a subpoena for the bank account through BB&T, [the officer] observed that Kimberley Kenyon had drawn all the money from the account at the end of January 2014,” according to an affidavit for a search warrant for Kenyon’s home.
The affidavit accuses Kenyon of personal transactions using the association’s account on Dec. 26 at Walmart for $212.81, on Dec. 19 at Best Buy for $676.35 and on Dec. 31 at Sprint for $825.
“Looking at the checks that had cleared in the BB&T account while open, there were several that were either made for cash or made payable to Kimberley Kenyon," the affidavit states.
It’s unclear how much money Kenyon is accused of stealing.
Deputies searched her home on June 11, seizing a computer, three cellphones, plastic container with paperwork, three checkbooks and other items.
Kenyon was released from the Rockingham County Jail on Friday. She is due in Rockingham County General District Court on Aug. 13.
