Woman accused of stealing from youth baseball team

The Associated Press Published: December 8, 2013

PUEBLO — A 38-year-old Penrose woman is accused of stealing thousands of dollars from a local youth baseball team.

The Pueblo Chieftain reported Saturday (http://bit.ly/1aJpcg3 ) that Julianne Smith has been arrested for investigation of felony theft, forgery and unauthorized use of a financial transaction. She's accused of stealing $6,675 from the Florence Husky Youth Baseball League when she was its president.

A probable cause affidavit says league officials discovered numerous transactions between last December and October that were deemed suspicious. Three of the transactions, adding up to more than $500, allegedly were payments to Black Hills Energy for Smith's home in Penrose.

Investigators say Smith told them she thought some of the charges in question were justified because she had contributed her own money to the league's account.
