    PD: Ex-Treasurer Stole $20K from Youth Basketball League
    North Branford Police
    Donna Ricci was charged after an investigation into youth basketball league finances.

    The former treasurer of the North Branford Youth Basketball League is accused of stealing $20,000 from the organization.

    Board members of the North Branford Youth Basketball League reached out to police in November 2014 about possible finance improprieties by the treasurer at the time, Donna Ricci, and said she refused to provide financial records that she controlled, according to police.

    After obtaining search warrants, police went through thousands of pages of financial documents and obtained an arrest warrant charging Ricci with one count of first-degree larceny.

    She turned herself in at the North Branford Police Department on Monday and was released on a $10,000 surety bond.

    Ricci is scheduled to appear at GA 23 in New Haven on Feb. 25.
