The Lynchburg Police Department said two people have been arrested for embezzling from the Timberlake Dixie Youth Organization, which runs baseball and softball youth teams.
Police said Timberlake Dixie Youth board members became aware of discrepancies involving the financial reports of their non-profit organization in October and asked LPD to investigate.
Detectives said they determined the fraudulent activity began in 2017 and continued through October 2018 with a total loss in excess of $20,000.
Richard Lee Mathews, 44, of Campbell County, the president of Timberlake Dixie Youth and April Lynn Mathews, 50, of Campbell County, the treasurer of Timberlake Dixie Youth have been charged with two counts of embezzlement and two counts of obtaining money by false pretenses.
