Fulton County, Ind. A Fulton County man is accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from the organization whose funds he was entrusted to oversee.
Following a nearly month-long investigation, police arrested Michael Fincher Wednesday on a warrant for five felony counts of theft.
Fincher, who served as the Treasurer of the Mentone Youth League for the past two years, allegedly used about $50,000 of group's money to pay for personal items.
Last month, board members asked police to look into their finances for 2012 and 2013, after they reviewed their banking statements and discovered that some of their funds had been misspent.
Fincher was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail, where he was being held on a $2,000 bond.
The Youth League Board plans to do an independent audit of their account to get a more accurate dollar amount of the missing money so they can then ask for restitution from Fincher.
