Ocean County officials reported that on September 6, Mr. Michael D. Weber, 64, of Spotswood, was charged with Theft.

Ocean County officials said an investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Economic Crime Squad and Plumsted Township Police Department revealed that Weber - acting in his capacity as Treasurer of the Lakeside Rod and Gun Club in Plumsted Township - stole approximately $4,000.00 from the club between July 2017 and January 2021.

Weber was responsible for collecting and depositing the club’s membership dues and paying the club’s expenses.

While he did, in fact, collect the membership dues, Weber utilized the funds for his own personal benefit.

Weber was processed and released on a summons pending future appearances in Ocean County Superior Court.

Prosecutor Billhimer and Chief Meroney acknowledge the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office Economic Crime Squad and Plumsted Township Police Department for their collaborative efforts in connection with this investigation.
