Little League president charged over misused $27K in Ohio

GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A Little League president in northeast Ohio is charged with felony theft and money laundering after investigators determined he used more than $27,000 in funds from the baseball program for his personal gain.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office says it began investigating after learning in August that over $10,000 was missing from a bank account for the Little League program in Green, south of Akron.

Investigators say an analysis by a forensic account helped reveal that the president had co-mingled personal funds with Little League money and misused thousands of dollars.

Forty-six-year-old Timothy McCloud, of Green, faces two felony charges.

A message seeking comment was left Thursday for his attorney.
