According to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, investigators received information in early August of a possible embezzlement case involving the Hershland American Legion Post 279 Baseball League.
It was reported that the organization was missing a significant amount of money.
Investigators contacted a local Forensic Accountant and it was determined that around $38,000 was unaccounted for over the last two years.
The investigation revealed that Robin Hiatt was solely responsible for the finances of the organization and investigator’s attempts to speak with her about discrepancies were ignored, according to LCSO.
On September 12, with the assistance of the Keith County Sheriff’s Office, an arrest warrant was executed on Hiatt for felony theft by unlawful taking.
Hiatt was jailed at the Lincoln County Detention Center.
Officials say the investigation is ongoing and further charges are pending.
