BRIDGEVILLE, Del. - A Bridgeville couple has been arrested in connection with theft from a local homeowners' association.

Following a Department of Justice investigation, the Delaware DOJ says 33-year-old Jessica McGinnis and 50-year-old David McGinnis were arrested and indicted by a grand jury.

According to the DOJ, unpaid bills to maintain the Morningside Village community's sewage system led to the investigation. The DOJ says bank records showed that money deposited into a fund for the system maintenance was instead depleted by checks written to the McGinnises totaling $20,167.63.

Jessica McGinnis took over as secretary and treasurer of the Morningside Village Homeowners’ Association in 2012, the DOJ said. She and her husband each faces four counts of Second Degree Conspiracy and Theft Greater than $1,500.

“This theft deprived an entire community of needed funds for maintenance," Attorney General Matt Denn said after the indictment. "This thorough investigation is proof that we take complaints about homeowners’ associations and communities seriously, and will prosecute those who abuse the trust of their neighbors."
