New Jersey man accused of defrauding FEMA
FREEHOLD, N.J. - May 23, 2013 (WPVI) -- Authorities have accused a New Jersey man of swindling more than $12,000 from the Federal Emergency Management Agency after Superstorm Sandy.
Prosecutors say 51-year-old William Nagle of Sea Bright used the money to pay for 68 nights of lodging even though he could have lived in his third-floor apartment.
Prosecutors say Nagle's unit was temporarily uninhabitable after Sandy caused flooding and interrupted utilities to the building. But tenants were allowed back on Dec. 29, 2012.
Authorities say Nagle stayed at various hotels between Jan. 14 and March 23.
Nagle is charged with theft by deception.
His arrest was made by Monmouth County's Superstorm Sandy Fraud Task Force.
