On August 16, 2022, a preliminary hearing was held before the Honorable Magisterial District Judge Daniel J. Freedman regarding theft charges filed in May against Timothy Hoffman, 53, of Carlisle. Hoffman is charged with 5 counts of felony Theft by Required Disposition of Funds and 2 counts of felony Theft by Deception. Following testimony from five different victims, all charges were held for court.
It is alleged that between 2017-2019, Hoffman was the owner/president of Hoffman Custom Contracting based in Dickinson Township, Cumberland County.  The business specialized in the building of custom residential homes.  During this period, Hoffman entered into contracts to build five separate homes located in Dickinson, Middlesex, and South Middleton Townships.  In each of these cases, Hoffman took funds intended for work or building materials but never applied them as they were intended.  He also misled victims by convincing them to sign documents to obtain credit in their names.  Seven of the twelve victims in this case were older than sixty years of age. These charges have been brought by the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Criminal Investigation Division.
