A grand jury Monday indicted a Warren County woman accused of stealing from her neighborhood property owners association.
Elizabeth Joan Boyd stands charged in Warren County Circuit Court with two felony counts of embezzlement. Boyd, 49, of 43 Highridge Road, Front Royal, remains free on an unsecured bond.
Indictments charge Boyd with stealing $200 or more from the Lake Front Royal Property Owners Association sometime between Sept. 1, 2017, and Sept. 30, 2017, and between Oct. 1, 2017, and Oct. 31, 2017.
Warrenton attorney Joseph R. Pricone represents Boyd.
The Warren County Sheriff’s Office arrested Boyd on Dec. 21. A criminal complaint filed in the case states that the Sheriff’s Office began an investigation into possible embezzlement from the association. Investigators discovered that Boyd was the appointed treasurer of the association’s board. She used the association’s bank card to make unauthorized and unreported purchases for personal gain over many months, according to the complaint. Boyd embezzled more than $500 from the association each month between September 2017 through February 2018, the complaint states.
An affidavit for a search warrant dated Aug. 23 and used to examine bank records states that the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from association member James Spurlock Jr. who told investigators Boyd worked for the organization. While Boyd worked for the association, its board gave her a bank card, the affidavit states. Spurlock provided multiple receipts showing that Boyd used the credit card to make unauthorized purchases for “many thousands of dollars,” according to the affidavit. Spurlock told investigators that Boyd, when confronted, admitted to making the purchases, the affidavit states.
“(Boyd) states either a family member took the card without asking, or she mistook the card with her own,” the affidavit states. “At the time she did not offer to repay the funds. She stated she has an account with the same bank and a similar card.”
Authorities initially charged Boyd with six counts of embezzlement. At a June 18 hearing, a judge certified two counts of embezzlement to a grand jury. The judge dismissed the four remaining counts at the request of the prosecutor.

Krystian Austyn Baiamonte, 19, of 208 Orchard St., Front Royal, on one count of assault and battery of a law enforcement officer.
