NC Update: Clayton woman charged with embezzling from HOAs

Police on Tuesday arrested the owner of a homeowners association management company suspected of stealing as much as $800,000 from dozens of area HOAs.  Diana Ellis Kelly, 54, of Clayton, has been indicted on 25 counts of embezzlement and was being held in the Wake County jail under a $500,000 bond.  Twenty-five HOAs from across the Triangle filed complaints this summer with the Garner Police Department or the Consumer Protection Division of the state Attorney General’s Office after accounts were found drained and checks started bouncing. Accounts for all of the HOAs were, at some point, maintained by Kornerstone Community Management in Garner, which Kelly owned and operated.
