Land O'Lakes property manager pocketed tenants' money for hearing aids, deputies say

LAND O'LAKES — An assistant property manager was arrested Wednesday after deputies said she accepted tenants' money but didn't put it toward their rent.

Geraldine S. Bradley, 69, accepted the money Saturday on behalf of Gann & Gann Realty, at 21312 Paoli Drive, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report says. She later told deputies she used the money to order a set of $1,500 hearing aids for herself.

Bradley, whose address is listed the same as the realty, was arrested on a charge of grand theft. She was being held Thursday in Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.
