Former softball league treasurer accused of stealing thousands of dollars.

Posted: Updated:


Charges have been filed against the former treasurer of the Rural Softball League, based in Fort Branch.

Angela Gibbs is accused of stealing over $6,000, according to a probable cause affidavit.

14 News is told it all started when Fifth Third bank contacted league president Edward Mason to let him know the league's account was overdrawn.

According to the affidavit, several unauthorized transactions occurred between April of 2012, and January of this year. Mason discovered these dispcrepancies after comparing the 2011-2012 treasurer's report with the actual account history.

According to the affidavit, over $3,000 were taken through those unauthorized transactions, that included ATM withdrawals, convenience store charges, and phone bill payments. It also says just under another $3,000 was missing from the account, that didn't show up on the treasurer's report.

Gibbs has repaid part of the account, saying her husband used the wrong debit card. Still, the league board decided to file a criminal complaint against her. And Gibbs now faces a Class D felony.

"We obviously, looked through it and decided to go ahead and do just that," Gibson County Prosecutor Robert Krieg said. "So, that's where we are now. We filed a charge of theft, and the judge found probable cause on it, she's appeared, and we're just working through the process now."

We will update this story as the situation develops.
