The Delaware County Prosecutor’s Office announced on June 6 that a grand jury returned a four-count indictment against a Westerville woman.

Patricia A. DeVore, 55, the former treasurer of the Big Walnut Soccer Association (BWSA), is charged with theft (a fourth-degree felony); tampering with records (fourth-degree felony); forgery (a fourth-degree felony); and misuse of credit cards (a first-degree misdemeanor).

“Ms. DeVore had served as treasurer for approximately 10 years,” County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien said in a statement. “During her tenure, Ms. DeVore is alleged to have used her position to gain association funds for personal use.”

The BWSA’s website said it “is a non-profit recreational league for children ages 4-14 in the Big Walnut area and surrounding communities” funded by player fees.

The four counts occurred from Sept. 11, 2009; to March 1, 2014, said Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Julie Datko. She said the wording of the indictment is that the amount in question is between $7,500 and $150,000.

A hearing date has not been set.
