JamesHolland10.12.11.jpgThe former director of property management for the Tenderloin Housing Clinic in San Francisco was arrested last week for allegedly embezzling more than $29,000 from the nonprofit, police said today.

James Holland, 41, allegedly collected rental checks from tenants at the housing clinic and deposited them into his personal bank account, according to police.

Holland also allegedly placed an ad on Craigslist and moved a new tenant into a unit without notifying other THC officials, then set up a P.O. Box to collect a total of $18,000 in rent money paid for the unit, police said.

Investigators seeking Holland went last November to Dallas, where he had been receiving mail, but could not find him.

After receiving a tip about Holland’s whereabouts, which were back in San Francisco, officers responded and arrested him in the 1200 block of Sunnydale Avenue, police said.

Holland has been charged with grand theft, embezzlement and 19 counts of forgery and remains in jail, according to police.
