Former Latrobe booster club official accused in theft
The former treasurer of the Greater Latrobe Football Boosters Association is accused of misappropriating $9,828 of the organization's funds.
Latrobe police have charged Pamela L. Kerila, 46, of 953 Jamell Drive, Unity, with theft by failure to make required disposition of funds and receiving stolen property.
According to an affidavit of probable cause filed with District Judge Michael Mahady of Unity, school officials learned of a problem with the booster organization's account last spring when it received a $9,828 bill for the 2008 football camp at Antiochian Village in Fairfield.
The school district subsequently paid the tab "in an effort of maintaining an ongoing relationship with the Antiochian Village," but has been unable to recover the money from Kerila, according to the affidavit.
A preliminary hearing is tentatively scheduled for Monday.
