NJ man charged with embezzling from youth league
Question of the Day
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged the former treasurer of a New Jersey youth sports league with embezzling tens of thousands of dollars.
The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office says it was notified by the Flemington-Raritan Baseball League’s directors that they found discrepancies after an audit of the organization’s finances.
Authorities allege the league’s treasurer, Kevin Lockrey, had embezzled more than $100,000.
The 42-year-old Flemington resident was arrested on Thursday. He faces charges of theft by deception.
Lockrey was released after posting bail. It’s not immediately known if he has an attorney.
