Plainville Condo Treasurer Accused Of Stealing $77,279 From Association

A Plainville woman has turned herself into police on charges that she stole almost $80,000 from the condo association where she lives and had been its treasurer.

According to a New Britain Herald article written by Justin Muszynski, Amy Lausier is charged with one count of first-degree felony.

“According to the arrest warrant, Lausier made numerous cash withdrawals from two bank accounts linked to the Milford Manor Condo Association on Milford Street between May 2013 and May 2017. Police allege $77,279 was misappropriated during that time period,” according to the Herald.

“Additionally, the six-page warrant said, Lausier allegedly did not pay condo association fees for about 10 years, saving herself roughly $30,000. The association also owes the Town of Plainville back taxes, including penalties, because those bills were not paid.”

The issue was discovered by a board member questioning the association’s finances. Lausier’s husband had served as president of the association, the Herald said.

    Hi all, I’m now living in a HOA in the Asheville N.c. area. Whats new?? Anyone in control of he funds of a condo Association can steal and its pretty hard to detect until is too late. Why? the Ct. condo laws are a joke. Must make laws to prevent the co-mingling of operating funds and reserve funds and require boards report in detail cash in and cash out for each separate entity in an associaion. ie. operating fund, Speciall Assessment fund, Long term reserve funds, clubs that collect seperate fees.

    When I lived in Ct. in a condo for 28yrs the board would fix things such as skylights on some condos but not others. It was a pick and choose. I call it discrimination. I finally sold and left. I also learned the President and others took loans from our bank account to get new windows. Only a few were given such a priviledge. It was not written anywhere on the books. There fore when yearly meeting happened, a false report was filed so no one would wonder where the missing money was. Did they pay it back? With interest? Your bet is as good as mine. There are always a few that do what they want but other things they let deteriorate because they don’t care.
