Eagles Chaplain Charged with Embezzlement

By Patrick Sullivan | May 22, 2019

A Williamsburg man who served as chaplain and hospitality chairman for the Traverse City chapter of the Eagles faces embezzlement charges.

Martin Daniel Conway, 31, is accused of keeping money he collected during a trip to Midland in June 2018 totalling $3,460, funds that included the proceeds of a raffle. When members at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 383 confronted Conway about the money not being deposited into the organization’s account, Conway deposited $145, according to court records.

Michigan State Police investigated, and Conway later told them that he kept the money for himself.

Conway was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of embezzlement between $1,000 and $20,000 that carries up to 10 years in prison. He was released on bond under the condition that he not serve as treasurer for any organization, according to court records.
