According to the authorities, Stacy Cassidy has been arrested for her role in allegedly stealing more than $60,000 from a youth sports program. She allegedly used the money for family vacations and other expenses.
The 45-year-old woman from Chesterfield, New Jersey has been charged with elements of computer theft, misapplication of entrusted property, theft by deception, and forgery by uttering. Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Mansfield Township Police Chief Ronald Mulhall Jr. were the leading prosecutors in the case.
She was the treasurer for the youth sports program when she began to steal from it. This happened for five years before it stopped in 2020.

At this time, Cassidy is being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
The authorities began their investigation earlier this year. Members of the Northern Burlington Junior Greyhound Athletic Association came to the authorities with allegations that Cassidy had been tampering with the funds.
Cassidy had been in the treasurer role from January 2015 through December 2019. The authorities found that Cassidy had made 542 transactions for $60,654 from the youth sports accounts.
Coffina said that she used the money for a variety of expenses, including her mortgage payments, cell phone payments, and more. She also allegedly made 84 ATM withdrawals for more than $21,000, according to Coffina, for family cruises and a Disney World trip.
She tried to conceal her theft. However, it did not work, as she fabricated the reports.
