The former treasurer of the Coon Rapids Cardinal Hockey Red Line Club, whom authorities say stole club funds for personal use, pleaded guilty Wednesday, according to court records.
Jennifer Leeanne Crosbie was charged with one count of theft or diversion of corporate property, a felony.
The criminal complaint says Crosbie served as the club's treasurer from May 2016 to July 2018 and had sole access to the club's financial accounts and debit card. In July of 2018, the club president began to suspect she might be embezzling money.
According to the complaint, a private accounting firm hired by the club to conduct a forensic audit of its financial accounts determined a total of $36,176 in non-club related transactions had been made from May 2016 to July 2018. Most were cash withdrawals and purchases at retailers and convenience stores.
The complaint alleges Crosbie admitted to taking the funds for her personal use in a statement to police.
