Football booster charged with stealing from club

  • Follow Latest News

CORDELE, Ga. (AP) - The former treasurer of a Georgia high school football booster club was charged with siphoning money from the organization.

Mark Brubaker, 52, was arrested this week by the Bradford County Sheriff's Department in Pennsylvania after Georgia authorities sought his extradition. He is charged with 483 counts of thefts by conversion from the Crisp County High Touchdown Club.

The Crisp County Sheriff's office says Brubaker stole at least $15,000 from the organization between July 2009 and August 2010. Authorities say he improperly used the club's credit card or stole cash donations made to the organization.

A judge set Brubaker's bail at $50,000. He could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday.

Stealing from booster clubs

Stealing from booster clubs is so common and has happened in Richmond and Columbia counties. What is it with these people? Other parents and fans are donating and working to help the school and team while a few are stealing.

Yeah, this is very commonplace. It makes you wonder why these organizations don't have operating systems in place to keep those who handle money in check. Duh..........
