N.J. men accused of stealing more than $75K from condominium |

Yesterday I was contacted by somebody who is interested in making more people aware of this situation through various means.  The person says it is a much larger story than the article indicates. I am not authorized to give out this person's contact information, but if anybody wants to follow up and learn more about the case, send me an email at and I will pass your contact info along to the person in question.


Three men allegedly stole at least $75,000 from a Jersey City condominium, pocketing money intended for repairs, loan repayments and other costs.  Raymond Gonzalez and Raul Miranda, of Hackensack-based property management company, RPM Group, and Jose Astuto, owner of Queen Remodeling Corp., in North Bergen, have been charged with conspiring to steal between $75,000 and $500,000 from the Berkeley Carteret Condominium Association, according to an indictment provided on Wednesday by the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office. They allegedly stole money from residents of the Jersey City community--located at 53 Duncan Ave.--intended for general property maintenance, loan repayment and other purposes. Representatives for the condominium could not immediately be reached for comment.  The three men are charged with money laundering and conspiracy, according to the indictment. Gonzalez and Miranda face additional theft by deception and theft by failure to make required disposition of property received charges, according to the indictment. Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino would not provide additional information on the allegations against the men. The men did not immediately return calls for comment on Wednesday.
