Riverview police officials announced March 2 that an investigation into the suspected embezzlement, from Nov. 29 to Dec. 16, 2019, of $967.61 from the Riverview Junior Football Association has been launched.
The suspect allegedly attached a Fifth Third Bank account used by the RJFA cheer group to a personal PayPal account, and used RJFA funds without authorization. In addition to the alleged misuse of funds, it is suspected that sample cheerleader uniforms, which are used to fit uniforms for youth participants, were purchased and not returned, which is considered a misappropriate use of funds.
Police detectives are seeking charges from the prosecutor’s office, and an attempt has been made to recover the misappropriated property. No arraignment and arrest have been made as of press time.
