An area Tavern League treasurer is expected to be referred to the Lincoln County district attorney today.
A 47 year old Tomahawk woman may face charges following a felony theft investigation. In February, the Tomahawk/Merrill Tavern League contacted law enforcement regarding discrepancies in their book keeping.
An investigation revealed that the woman, who was the treasurer, diverted thousands of dollars in funds for personal expenses according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department.
In total they found over $20,000 had been taken from the league. A felony charge of theft in a business setting will be recommended.
