MELBOURNE, Florida – A man who was put in a position of trust as a property manager for the Monterey Bay Apartments has been arrested, according to the Melbourne Police Department.
William Antonio Olivieri, 64, of Palm Bay, was charged with Grand Theft and Scheme to Defraud several tenants at the Monterey Bay Apartments in Melbourne.
Police said an internal audit revealed that Olivieri collected rent starting in December 2017 until March 2018 from six different tenants for the total amount of $7,600. However, during this time, he failed to turn in the money to the apartment owner.
In a separate investigation, Olivieri is accused of overcharging tenants and collecting rent money without completing leases in a “scheme to defraud” the rightful owner, according to the affidavit.
Olivieri was arrested Wednesday and transported to the Brevard County Jail where bond was set at $4,000.
According to jail records, Olivieri was arrested on April 5, 2018, at the same apartment building for trying to steal building materials. He was charged with Grand Theft in that case.
