Third person charged in $15,000 theft from Salineville Girl Scouts

Posted: Updated:
LISBON, Ohio -

A third person has been charged in connection with the theft of thousands of dollars from a Girl Scout troop in Columbiana County.

Police have filed a charge of receiving stolen property against 33-year old April Robertson of Salineville.

A grand jury is already weighing evidence in the cases against two other people accused of withdrawing $15,108 from the bank account of Girl Scout Troop 800.

Troop leader 36-year-old Denise Everhart of Salineville is charged with theft and falsification. 21-year-old Timothy McCourt of Bergholz, Ohio is charged with theft, falsification and misuse of credit cards.

The missing money came to light earlier this month after Everhart filed a police report saying that the credit card used for Girl Scout business was missing.

Salineville Police Chief Andrew Straley later questioned Everhart, who could not explain the charges on the credit card, and could not provide receipts. The chief says that Everhart eventually told him that she had permission from the Girl Scouts to use scout money to pay her child support, and would be paying it back right away. Everhart was charged and booked into the county jail.

Police say that McCourt confessed that Everhart paid him $50 to $100 to withdraw money from the Girl Scout account on several occasions. He also says he used the card several times without Everhart's knowledge.

Police say they have surveillance photos showing Everhart and McCourt making withdrawals from the local branch of the Huntington bank on several occasions.

Robertson is scheduled for arraignment in Columbiana County Municipal Court on September 9.
