NYPD Employee Steals $366,380 From Woodbrooke Estates HOA

guest blog by Nila Ridings

One would think a guy that worked in the evidence and property room of the NYPD as a control specialist would have a high level of integrity. Nope. Wrong. Danny Juliano was the president of Woodbrooke Estates HOA in Staten Island and convinced the board members he was getting a cheaper price on pool supplies over in New Jersey so they handed him the cash to make those purchases.

I don’t know about the readers of this blog, but I’d be questioning the need for $366,380 worth of pool supplies since October of 2011. I’d also be asking for receipts. 629 condo and townhouse owners just took a financial beating because their HOA board members were sleeping on the job!

Now, let’s sit back and watch to see what the NYPD will do to one of their own. Will he get community service? Will he be fired from his job? Will he go to jail? Will the homeowners ever see a dime of their stolen money again?

He was ordered to turn over his passport so possibly he will not set sail in his new yacht!
