Pasco County deputies: Rent money went into manager's pocket

ZEPHYRHILLS — A manager for an apartment complex was arrested Thursday on charges she pocketed $5,700 in rent payments since June.

According to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, Honey Gayle Page, 52, asked tenants at the Belmont at Ryals Chase to pay their rent in cash or give her checks with the payable line blank. She then cashed those checks herself, the report said.

When her bosses realized some money wasn't making it into the company account, they ordered an audit.

Page, who worked for New Era Corporate Housing as the complex manager, admitted to the thefts and told deputies she used the money "to help care for her ailing husband," the report said.

Page, who lives at 5832 Wedgefield Drive in Zephyrhills, is charged with grand theft. She was released from the Pasco County jail on $2,000 bail.

According to the Florida Department of Corrections, Page was in prison from January 2003 to June 2005 after being convicted of three counts of grand theft, two counts of trafficking in stolen property and one count of giving false information to a pawnbroker.

In her latest arrest report, Page's occupation is listed as "cleaner."
