A Warren man has pleaded “not guilty” to a grand theft indictment accusing him of stealing more than $140,000 from a condominium association.

Trumbull County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 62-year-old Randy Rule of Surrey Point Circle SE last week at an East Market Street restaurant.

According to an indictment handed up by the county grand jury, Rule allegedly used deception to steal $140,218 from the Surrey Point II Homeowners Association when he was the organization's president.

A court document claims Rule got the money by submitting falsified invoices to management from work that was never performed. Some of the invoices were from non-existent companies, according to investigators.

The indictment alleges the theft took place over seven years beginning in 2015.

Another court hearing in the case is scheduled for August 14.
