Records Seized in Las Vegas HOA Insurance Probe

April 12, 2011

Police and Nevada state attorney general’s investigators seized records from a Las Vegas homeowner association in what one member calls an embezzlement investigation.

Former state Sen. Bill O’Donnell tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that investigators carried away boxes of documents at Paradise Spa HOA off Las Vegas Boulevard South near Interstate 15.

O’Donnell is an association homeowner. He says the case involves allegations that an association official mishandled insurance money after a fire two years ago.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto declined comment about warrants served.

The Review-Journal reported the search wasn’t believed to be part of an ongoing federal investigation of homeowner associations in the Las Vegas area.
