From a press release that the D.A.’s office sent out on Tuesday morning:
The evidence to date shows that Tollefson, over the past three (3) years, fraudulently solicited money for charities – including the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania, the Salvation Army, and the Brad Fox Foundation – then misappropriated that money. The investigation shows Tollefson victimized more than 100 individuals and misappropriated more than $100,000.
Neither Tollefson nor his attorney responded to a request for comment on Tuesday morning.
Meanwhile, Tollefson’s voicemail says, “I will, uh, not be available for the near future.” Listen below.
