arrested the former general manager of the condo complex on Pierce Street in late November, said authorities Thursday.
Police say Tammy Lynn Ashworth, 46, embezzled funds and property from the condominiums, where she was employed as general manager from April through September 2010.
According to Albany Police Detective Sgt. David Bettencourt, "It was following her termination that the [condo] association board became fully aware of her illegal activities and a report was quickly made to the Albany Police Department."
Albany police obtained a warrant from the Alameda County district attorney's office for Ashworth’s arrest for forgery, fraudulent use of access cards, grand theft, drawing checks with the intent to defraud and two counts of embezzlement. Bail on the warrant was set at $95,000.
Before Albany police could arrest Ashworth, said Bettencourt, she was arrested in Citrus Heights and sentenced to serve time in a jail in Elk Grove for a separate theft-related offense.
On Nov. 28 she completed her sentence, and Albany detectives picked her up from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department and took her to Santa Rita Jail, where she was booked into custody on the Albany Police warrant.
Ashworth was arraigned Nov. 30; she remains in custody and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 23.
