FOREST GROVE, Ore. (AP) - A former president of Forest Grove Little League Softball has turned himself in after learning there was probably cause for his arrest in connection to funds that went missing from the team.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/mWvr6D) that 38-year-old Esteban “Steve” Aleman turned himself in Wednesday. He is accused of spending $4,500 on non-league business, including ATM withdrawals and equipment for a separate youth softball league he is involved with.

Current league president Greg Peters says that money is about a third of the organization’s annual budget. Peters contacted police after their treasurer noticed unusual charges on the league credit card statements in March.

Aleman was taken to Washington County Jail, where he was booked on theft charges.
