Deputies took a woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a homeowners association into custody Friday.
Vicki Ann Yancey, 56, was arrested at her Ocala home by Marion County Sheriff’s Office Detective Brandon Spillman and charged with larceny.
Yancey is the wife of Belleview High School football coach Phillip Yancey.
Officials with the Deer Path Homeowners Association said that, according to their audit, Vicki Yancey took a total of $28,772.85 from the HOA account. The HOA president told Spillman she was the association’s treasurer from 2002 until August 2014. He said she was not authorized to take money without the knowledge or consent of the board of directors and was the only person who had access to the account, Spillman’s report states.
According to the report, a deputy went to the Deer Path subdivision at 6853 SE 11th Place on Jan. 2 in reference to a report about the theft, which was discovered after an audit on the association’s finances was done.
