The Eden Prairie Police Department was contacted in April 2017 regarding a possible theft from the Edenvale Glen Condo Association homeowner's association fund.

According to the Department of Revenue, it was believed Nocton, who once served as president of the board, had been taking money from the association without permission.

Nocton told police the payments from the association fund to himself and his business was made while he was acting as property manager for the building. 

The case was later referred to the Department of Revenue. 

Investigators learned that Nocton reported only a small portion of the income he had earned from the Edenvale Glen Condo Association for taxes. 

According to the Department of Revenue, Nocton owes more than $17,800 in taxes, penalties and interest. 

Each charge Nocton faces carries a sentence of up to 5 years in prison.
