Criminal Trial for Richard & Cheryl Schamburg to start Tomorrow, Thursday May 26th. The Court hearing will take place at the Central Courthouse in Downtown San Diego.

According to sources Richard and Cheryl Schaumburg's Court hearings are starting tomorrow. Richard is being charged with one count of fraudulent appropriation by clerk, agent or employee and one count of grand theft of personal property. Cheryl Schaumburg, his wife, is charged with 16 counts of grand theft of personal property due to property management irregularities. The court hearing will take place on May 26 at 8:30 a.m. in the Central Courthouse in downtown San Diego.

In March we reported that Criminal Charges apparently had been brought against Richard & Cheryl Schamburg on February 18th of this year. At that time we were able to get the following information:

Case Number: CD265669 
Case Location: San Diego 
File Location Case Type: Criminal 
Date Filed: 02/18/2016
Defendant Last Name First Name Birth Year AKA DA Number 

In a December 2015 report it was noted:

San Diego Police Officers and Sheriff's Deputies raid office of One Source Realty Richard & Cheryl Schaumburg on Monday morning December 21st.

Monday Morning December 21st, I received a phone call that the One Source Reality Office was being raided by the Sheriffs.

In February of 2015 a member on the Board of Directors of the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce told me that Richard Schaumburg, who was then treasure for the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce, made an "unauthorized withdrawal" of $35,000 from the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce's bank account. I was told that he later repaid some of the money back to the Chamber of Commerce but not all of it and a substantial amount was still due. 

I was told by the Board Member that Richard Schaumburg claimed it was due to an error by the bank teller. He, Richard, was removed as Treasure of the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce in a vote by the Chamber of Commerce Board of directors in March of 2015.This lead to the Chamber filing a Police Report and has been the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Financial Crimes Unit of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

Richard and Cheryl Schaumburg. Who own and operate he  One Source Realty office, have been in local papers for over the last year with reports of various problems with their real estate dealings.

It is not know at this time which one of the sheriff’s investigations lead to the raid on their offices but I was told by a source that one would have to believe there is a good chance it is related to the unauthorized withdraws from the Imperial Beach Chamber of Commerce.
