Carlos Schillaci, former executive director of Hyde/Jackson Square Main Street (HJSMS), has been indicted by a grand jury on larceny charges for allegedly stealing nearly $20,000 from the nonprofit, according to Suffolk County District Attorney spokesperson Jake Wark.

Schillaci left HJSMS in summer 2011 amid accusations that money that was intended for the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation (JPNDC) had gone missing. The money was to reimburse JPNDC, which handles HJSMS’s payroll.

Wark said that Schillaci will appear in Suffolk Superior Court tomorrow to face two charges of larceny by scheme and two charges of larceny over $250. Schillaci is alleged to have embezzled nearly $20,000, using an HJSMS debit card and checking account for personal items and services between April 2009 and December 2010, according to Wark.

Wark said Schillaci currently resides in Easthampton and Wark does not know if he had retained a lawyer. Schillaci does not have a listed phone number there.
