Little League treasurer accused of embezzling over $130,000


Ramos

STONY POINT – The former Stony Point Little League treasurer Wednesday was arrested and charged with stealing over $130,000 from league accounts from 2004 until late 2008, Stony Point Town Police said.

Karen Ramos, 42, of Stony Point, was also charged with falsifying the monthly account balance reports that she submitted to the league to cover up her alleged theft.

She was charged with one count of grand larceny in the second degree, a felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison, and 26 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, a felony, punishable by up to four years in prison on each count.

Members of the Little League executive board came to police in early February of this year after spending several days reviewing the league’s accounts and realizing several thousand dollars as well as a $26,000 certificate of deposit, were missing.

Detectives spend several months reviewing records and documents and conducting interviews. A forensic accountant from the Rockland County DA’s office and Stony Point detectives conducted a forensic investigation into the accounts of both the league and Ramos.

She was arraigned in Stony Point Justice court following her arrest and released on her own recognizance.
