GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) - A 56-year-old Littleton woman accused of stealing nearly $10,000 from a girls volleyball booster club has been charged with theft.

The Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office said Tuesday that Kathleen McGrath was charged for allegedly stealing $9,976 while she was the treasurer of the Chatfield High School Spiker’s Booster Club between March 2012 and February 2013.

The high school girls volleyball coach reported last March the money was missing and McGrath could not be contacted.

McGrath was an authorized signor on the club’s account, which was funded by events organized by parents and players to benefit the team. Most of the money received through fundraising came in as cash, which was given to McGrath to deposit into the club’s bank account.
