Milford Woman Charged with Stealing from Boosters

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.

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.

Through the investigation, it was determined that starting around February of 2016, Trimmer would 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. She continued to do this up until March of 2017 at which time she had depleted the account for approximately $27, 995.00.

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

No wonder I always had my hand on my wallet whenever I saw her.

Desperate people do desperate things. I guess she hoped she would never get caught.

Trimmer. Good name for a skimmer.

And this is why two signatures should be required for every check.

Drain that swamp, what a dispiccable person.

Honestly, she's not that bad looking. If she really needed money she could have sold a little nookie on the side.

God helps those that help themselves.

Churches have been stealing for years.

Every person who has embezzled money has 3 things in common: they have a financial need, they were allowed the opportunity, and they rationalize that they deserve it. This is a classic case. She probably was deep in debt, or perceived she was, she obviously had the opportunity since there were no requirements for duel signatures, and she thought she deserved it because she "unselfishly" devoted all that time helping the boosters. (Sic)
You see this all the time and it blows my mind that ANY organization still allows one person to have this much control over all the finances.
I hope the judge makes an example of her or makes her teach classes on how to prevent embezzlement for non-profits.

Somebody should also audit the Salisbury Elk's - the Board of Directors son is the Lodge's accountant ? How did that ever happen ? Unbelievable.
