Former club treasurer waives theft charges

The former treasurer of the Middletown Youth Club who is charged with stealing more than $10,400 from the club will answer for those charges in Dauphin County Court.

 

Elizabeth Hicks, 31, of Aspen Street, Middletown, waived a preliminary hearing before District Judge David Judy on Wednesday, Nov. 5. As a result, Judy forwarded to county court all three felony charges that Middletown police filed against Hicks on Oct. 23.

 

Hicks is charged with theft by unlawful taking, theft by failure to make required disposition of funds and unauthorized use of an access device, according to court documents. She is scheduled to be arraigned in county court on Dec. 22.

 

Hicks was charged following an investigation by Middletown police that took more than two months. Police said the investigation into Hicks’ activities as treasurer of the youth club from 2013 on is continuing and could go on for several more months.

 

According to court documents filed by Middletown police, Hicks allegedly took $10,428.08 from the club in seven different transactions involving ATM withdrawals and checks that she allegedly wrote on the club account. However, elsewhere in the criminal complaint police allege that Hicks stole at least $12,000 from the club.

 

Police allege in the court documents that Hicks stole the money from the club to cover up money she was embezzling from a convenience store in Highspire where she worked as a manager.

 

The investigation began after the owner of the convenience store contacted the president of the youth club and asked why his store had received so many checks from the youth club account, according to police.
