Eastern Connecticut State University’s former athletic director turns herself in to police, on a charge of second degree larceny.  Joyce Wong recently retired.

Police say the larceny charge involves less than $2,000 in athletic department funds, from an event.

Police say the money was taken as part of an effort to defraud a public community.

Retired ECSU Police Lieutenant Derrick McBride is acting as a spokesperson for the department.

“There was a warrant applied for, and the warrant was returned and approved based on the facts and circumstances presented,” McBride said.

Police say the money has been returned, but McBride would not discuss what was done with the money that was allegedly improper or how it was improperly handled, because he was not involved in the investigation.

Police say the arrest stems from a complaint made in November.
Wong is due in court in Danielson February 22.
