GLOUCESTER, Mass. (AP) - The former president of a youth football program in Gloucester has been charged with embezzling approximately $9,000 from the organization over the past year.

Police Chief Leonard Campanello said Anthony Davis was charged after police responded to a report by the Gloucester Patriots Youth Football Program’s board of directors about missing money, unpaid bills and unauthorized purchases.

Police said the investigation showed that Davis allegedly used the program’s debit card 75 times for purchases totaling more than $2,250 for his own benefit and wrote 13 checks to “cash” totaling more than $1,700.

The board estimates that nearly $5,000 in income from concessions and registration fees were never deposited.

Davis will be summonsed to court at a later date. A telephone number listed for Davis was no longer in service Monday.
