Woman Charged With Stealing Over $27K From Boy’s Lacrosse Fund



Lewes – A Milford woman has been charged with felony theft after an investigation revealed she stole more than $27,000.00 from a local booster club, according to State Police.

Officials said Stephanie L. Trimmer, 42 of Milford, was arrested and charged with one count of Theft over $1,500.00 (Felony) on Thursday July 27, 2017 after detectives were alerted to money being missing.

On June 1, 2017, officials with the Cape Henlopen School District informed detectives that the boys high school lacrosse boosters account had a negative balance and should have contained several thousands of dollars. Stephanie Trimmer, who was the President of the booster club, was the only person since 2016 to have full access to this account, according to police.

Through the investigation, it was determined that starting around February of 2016, Trimmer would allegedly respond to various banks throughout eastern Sussex County and write checks out to herself for cash and fail to turn in receipts to the treasurer, according to State Police. She continued to do this up until March of 2017 at which time she had allegedly depleted the account for approximately $27, 995.00, according to authorities.

Stephanie Trimmer was arraigned at JP2 and released on $1,000.00 unsecured bond.
