Payroll manager arrested in connection to theft from Upper Dublin non-profit organization

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele and Upper Dublin Township Police Chief Francis Wheatley announced on May 27th the arrest of Anglea Nadeau, 42, of Royersford. Nadeau was arrested on multiple felonies related to the theft of more than $154,000 from The Kintock Group, an Upper Dublin-based non-profit organization that helps recently released incarcerated individuals with reentry and other services.

From the notice:

On Dec. 16, 2020, Upper Dublin Township Police were contacted by Kintock managers who initially reported a $12,000 theft by Nadeau. Nadeau, employed with Kintock under the name of Angela Claussen, was the payroll manager at the organization’s Ft. Washington headquarters, located in Upper Dublin Township. Upon receiving the theft report, Upper Dublin Police began an investigation, which found that the theft was much larger, totaling $154,535.68.

Police found that between 2017 and 2020, the defendant issued 88 unauthorized paychecks to former employees of The Kintock Group; however, she had changed the direct deposit information on the employee records so the unauthorized checks were deposited into a bank account that was in her name and for her own personal use. During this same time period, there were 1,626 debits on that bank account via debit/credit card transactions or through cash withdrawals at ATMs.

Nadeau is charged with 185 felony counts of Dealing in Proceeds of Unlawful Activity, Theft by Failing to Make Required Disposition of Funds, Theft by Unlawful Taking, Theft by Deception, Forgery and Identity Theft. She was arraigned before Magisterial District Judge Patricia A. Zaffarano, who set bail at $75,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m., June 4, 2021 before Judge Zaffarano.

The case will be prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Christopher Daniels.
