ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say the former treasurer of a girls’ softball organization in north Alabama is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the group.

The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Jamie Melissa Crowe of Elkmont illegally used more than $16,500 from the Limestone County Girls’ Softball Association in 2014 and 2015.

Investigators say the money went to various expenses and purchases including gasoline, groceries, utility bills and a hotel room.

Crowe was arrested on a theft charge Friday and freed on $5,000 bond. Court records aren’t yet available to show whether she has hired an attorney to speak on her behalf.

The softball association reported more than $16,000 missing in November, and Crowe repaid $5,000 a few days later. She was the association’s treasurer from 2010 until last year.
