Acing U.S. Attorney Louis D. Lappen announced Thursday a former manager at Trenton Marine’s Toms River marina was indicted on charges of wire fraud.
Forty-seven-year-old Denis Kelliher of Toms River, New Jersey was employed as a manager at Trenton Marine between 2013 and 2016. During that employment period, Kelliher acted as a broker for the sale of boats, selling about 13 boats without the owners’ knowledge. He utilized the proceeds to pay off debts owed to his business associates, according to the indictment.
Kelliher allegedly robbed the owners of their boats valued over $2 million. He faces a maximum 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
