Former Indiana Crime Stoppers Treasurer Charged With Embezzling $100+K
George Timlin, 67, of South Bend, Indiana, was charged with embezzling at least $100,000 from the local Crime Stoppers program where he had been employed as treasurer. Authorities believe Timlin could have been stealing from the program for as long as 16 years, but he is charged for only a five year period, due to the statue of limitations. He had served as Board Treasurer for more than 20 years. According to investigators, Timlin used his position to write checks to himself or for his own personal benefit.
