JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office is investigating missing funds that may affect your children.
Children involved with the Southwest Recreation League called off opening games this past Saturday
The Southwest Gators basketball team was expected to play this weekend but the games were postponed because of a lack of money.
League officials say the games were called off due to a change in leadership.
But now, a criminal investigation of an alleged act of embezzlement is underway.
“See what the facts are, was the money missing, was a crime committed, or were there other circumstances,” said Sheriff Hans Miller.
The leagues president’s status is also unclear.
Because the case involves a paper trail, an arrest likely would not be immediate.
