    According to federal investigators, he was stealing from the organization for more than four years, writing himself 132 checks from its bank account. Agents said he deposited more than $136,000 into his personal account and two accounts for a flower shop he owned.

    Many people said they knew Stevenson as the nice man who owned Lunden's Flower Shop in Brownsville.

    "He's just a nice, pleasant guy and it's very shocking that he supposedly done that. You know, I would never ever imagine it," said Penny Berisko, who works in Brownsville.
