Former Little League President Accused Of Stealing Thousands

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police say the former president of a little league group in New Hampshire has been arrested on suspicion of stealing over $4,000 from the league’s accounts.

Police say Robert Lachapelle of Concord is accused of transferring funds out of the Concord Northeast Baseball and Softball League’s account in 2010 and writing a check.

Officials began investigating the league’s finances when Lachapelle left in 2011. They contacted police in April 2012.

The 54-year-old Lachapelle was released on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on March 18. It was not immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Lachapelle was league president from 2007 to 2011.
