The treasurer of a Deerfield Beach condominium association is accused of stealing more than $12,000 from the association's bank account.


Michael Dettman, 28, is facing a charge of larceny/grand theft.
During 19 days in February, Dettman made 19 withdrawals totaling $12,450 from the operating account of the Coco Cay Condominium Association at the BB&T bank branch on North Federal Highway in Deerfield Beach, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office arrest report.
The association president told the Sheriff's Office that Dettman was not authorized to make any of the withdrawals, the report said.
According to the report, a photo lineup confirmed that Dettman was the person making the withdrawals at the bank.


Dettman was arrested on Friday and released from jail after posting a $1,000 bond.


Efforts to contact Dettman and the president of the Coco Cay Condominium Association on Monday were unsuccessful.
