Marvin Royal of Pleasantville also faces a theft by deception charge. He turned himself in Wednesday at the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and was later released.

Prosecutors say the 62-year-old Royal used the card without permission last September to avoid paying sales tax on a laptop computer and some software, which they say he bought for his personal use. At the time, he was a housing manager for the Jeffries Towers public housing complex.

Royal retired from the authority in February. A phone number for him could not be located Wednesday night.
