PHOENIX — The former head of a Phoenix-area property management company and his wife face federal charges accusing them of stealing nearly $1.3 million from bank accounts of homeowners associations which were clients.

Harlow and Nancy White haven’t yet entered pleas to a September indictment charging them with conspiracy to commit money laundering and transactional money laundering, and defense attorney Timothy Collier says it’s premature to comment on the allegations.

The indictment accuses the couple of making unauthorized transfers from accounts of HOA clients of Eagle Property Management Inc. and spending the money on personal expenses, including credit card payments and personal insurance coverage.

Two daughters of Harlow White and the then-husband of one of the daughters have already pleaded guilty in the case and await sentencing.
