Cops: Little League mom steals $74,000

Stop me if you've heard this one before.

State police in Chester County arrested a Little League mom after she allegedly stole more than $70,000 raised through hot dog and candy sales, raffles and donations, according to the West Chester Daily Local News.

From a story by reporter Jennifer Miller:
Gretchen Ray Vickers, 36, of Nottingham, surrendered Wednesday after police issued a warrant for her arrest July 18. Vickers — a member of the Avon Grove Area Little League Parents Auxiliary — was arrested following an 18-month investigation allegedly revealed she stole about $74,000 over a three-year period, police said. The stealing started in September 2003 or earlier when she became a member of the auxiliary, police said. Vickers was in charge of concession-stand operations, which included managing and depositing concession-stand cash into an auxiliary bank account, police said.
How many times does this have to happen before athletic groups and other clubs figure out that you can't have one person in charge of all your finances.
