LaFourche Parish woman admits to stealing over $12,000 from youth baseball league.
Cops in the LaFourche Parish town of Golden Meadow say they’ve arrested a woman accused of stealing over $12,000 from a non-profit children’s baseball league. Chief Reggie Pitre (PEE’-tree) says they received a complaint from the league’s board of directors about 35-year-old Renee Serigny (sehr-in-YAY’) after noticing inappropriate activity on their bank accounts.
“During an investigation into the last 12 months of bank statements, cumulative totals came out to be a little over $12,000 that was missing out of both accounts,” said Pitre.
Serigny was booked with two counts of felony theft and was released from the parish jail after posting a $4,000 bond. Pitre says he questioned the woman himself about the incident.
“She admitted to using the money for personal reasons and didn’t realize the built up total was so high,” said Pitre.
Pitre says that money was supposed to go towards their Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken league’s account for things like supplies and uniforms from registration fees.
“And from her admission she used the accounts for her bills,” said Pitre.
