  FREEHOLD – A former office administrator of a pain management center in Wall Township was recently arrested for the theft of over $150,000 from the business, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

  On January 21, 2020, police arrested 61-year old William Donald of Oceanport. Donald was charged with Theft by Unlawful Taking, a second degree crime and Falsifying or Tampering with Records, a fourth degree crime.

  An investigation revealed that, between June 2016 until February 2019, Donald misappropriated $155,577.12 from the pain management center.

  As Office Administrator, Donald opened a point of sale machine, in his name, claiming he was the sole owner of the practice. Donald used the stolen funds, which came from the Pain Management Center’s bank accounts, to pay personal bills such as his personal vehicle, his sons’ rent, and bills incurred on a property he owned in Vermont.

  Donald faces 5-10 years in state prison on the second degree charge, and up to 18 months in state prison on the fourth degree charge.
