A former treasurer is accused of stealing $9,000 from the Marysville Pilchuck High School band booster club in Washington.
Former treasurer used the money to cover overdue rent and debts, according to charges filed in Snohomish County Superior Court. She reportedly claimed she was three months behind on rent, so she’d taken money out of the club bank account, figuring she could pay it back before anyone noticed. She told the club president she could sell off family cars or do whatever was necessary to settle up. Days earlier, the club president was notified of problems with the booster account at Opus Bank. It was overdrawn by hundreds of dollars. Later, the board dug up bank records suggesting she’d forged checks in the name of a former treasurer, who resigned because of health problems in spring 2017. A few days after the football game, the treasurer showed up at the club president’s door with $700 in money orders and a Costco card that had been missing, court papers say. Police tried to get the treasurer’s side of the story. She told a school resource officer she could meet him. When he showed up, she messaged him saying she needed to go to work. Her attorney called police two days later, saying the woman would not talk. She is accused of first-degree theft and three counts of forgery.
