A popular Potomac recreational club is drowning in disbelief, after falling victim to a $70,000 embezzlement scheme.
On Oct. 24, Montgomery County Police pinned nine felony theft charges against Amelia Hillman, 49, of Potomac. Hillman, police say, used her position as treasurer of the Tallyho Swim & Tennis Club to launder tens of thousands of dollars over a number of years.
“It’s very shocking to hear something like that. You definitely don’t expect it in your swim club, and you don’t expect it in this neighborhood,” Hillman’s neighbor and former Tallyho member Andy McClymont said.
