Treasurer charged with grand theft
The case of a Campbell man accused by police of taking money from the Coitsville Firefighters Association will go before a Mahoning County grand jury.
Michael A. Morris, township police chief, said Daniel J. Maloney, 27, firefighters association treasurer, is charged with grand theft totaling $5,218. He is free after posting $6,000 bond.
He appeared in Campbell Municipal Court on Friday, and a judge bound the case over to the grand jury.
Morris said the investigation continues into money missing from the association’s accounts.
T.J. Gigax, association president, said he first learned of a problem about two weeks ago when he received a phone call from the bank. Gigax said the association’s checking and savings accounts had been “cleared out.” The checking’s overdraft protection went into effect, leaving a deficit of $524.
Coitsville Firefighters Association is a nonprofit organization operated by Coitsville firefighters. The organization is separate from the Coitsville Township fire budget and the budget of the board of trustees.
Donations to the association stay with the nonprofit organization and do not go to the township fire department fund or the township.
Officials said donations to Coitsville Township Fire Department should be directed to the Coitsville Township Fire Fund and delivered to the township’s fiscal officer.
