A Troutman woman was arrested for embezzling money from a local youth athletic organization for which she acted as treasurer, according to the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.

The investigation began on January 18, the Sheriff's Office received a report of embezzlement from the Cloverleaf Youth Athletic Association (CYAA).

The case was assigned to a detective with the Economic Crime Unit.  An official of the CYAA reported to the Sheriff's Office that he had obtained information from the bank which showed that a total of $9,102 had been withdrawn from the organizations account through several ATM transactions.

The official then told detectives that the money was withdrawn by the Treasurer of the organization, Susan Williams, 39, of Troutman.

Troutman did have access to the account, as she was responsible for purchasing items for the organization, the official said. He further stated that the transactions occurred between May 2012 and January 2013 while Williams acted as Treasurer.

Upon further investigation, and after obtaining a written statement from Williams, it was found that "she did in fact withdraw the money and use it for her own personal use," the report states. 

Williams was arrested on Sunday, February 10, and charged with embezzlement. She was given a $3,000 unsecured bond, as well as a future court date.
