Crivitz Wolverines Boosters Report Treasurer Stole $20,000

Issue Date: October 10, 2019

Crivitz-- An emergency meeting of the Wolverine Sports Boosters was called to order on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 6 PM in the High School Library to discuss the financial state of the group.

Attending were Heather Mueller, Brenda Busick, Donna Woznicki, Kellie Stumbris, Nicole Johnson, Molly Meyers, Crystal Dorschner, Mike Spaulding, Bruce Mertens, Jeff Baumann, Mike Kudick, Tracey Doyen, Angie Kudick, Scott Doyen, Jeff Dorschner , Bill Retza, Charlie Johnsen and Scott Busick.

Brenda Busick conducted the meeting as she has been looking into discrepancies in what treasurer Alicia Maki reported at the previous meeting and what the actual financial condition of the Boosters is.

She said Maki took over as treasurer on June 12, 2019 when the checkbook was at $29273.25.  Boosters owed $10,000 to the school which was paid by Maki. It was reported $20,000 was missing since June of this year.

In July Tracey Doyen told Busick she was concerned about the checkbook and Maki didn't know the balance.

At the Aug. 17th Bean Bag Tournament records indicate $15,825.00 was collected. Searching through records Busick said she believes the cash donation tally is off and the number should be $16,525.  There was a deposit of $750 in checks on July 17, 2019. Then on Aug. 20th there was a deposit of $9660. Busick said $6115 cash was missing from the Bean Bag Tournament.

At the regular monthly meeting of the Boosters held on Sept. 18, 2019, Maki stated the checkbook was at $23,676.93.  When given the checkbook the balance was $29,273.25 with $10,000 to be paid to the school bringing that total down to $19,273.25.

On Sept. 9th Andy Fischer stated he had not been given any info by Maki for the Booster Club account. Maki announced at the September 18th meeting that she had a meeting set up with Andy for Sept. 23rd.  On Sept. 20th it was discovered this meeting had never been set up.  Maki was asked to provide receipts, however she stated her son had burned the receipts by accident.

On Monday, Sept. 23rd President Bruce Mertens went to Nicolet National Bank to obtain all bank records for the Booster Club account including copies of all checks and deposits.  In doing this it was discovered no concession stand money had been deposited and there had been only two deposits by Maki, both for the bean bag tournament totaling $10,410.

Maki stated at the Sept. 18th meeting, her brother had won the $1000 raffle prize from the bags tournament and donated the money back to the booster club.  In reviewing checks, it was discovered Maki had actually written herself a check for the $1000 and cashed it.

Maki made purchases at Sam's Club, seven purchases totaling $1,840.03 for personal use.  There were checks to Wal-Mart for $1,433.64, also for personal use.

An emergency meeting was called on Sept. 24th with Maki and she did not show up, however, just prior to bank closing that day she deposited $2,230.08.  She sent her friend to the meeting with the checkbook and stated the ledger had been burned, however, she did send a fake check ledger.  It was requested she drop off the money bag she had in her possession and her keys to the school at the bank the next morning.  She did not do this, and stated she was working and unable to do so.

On Thursday, Sept. 26th Maki met with Busick and Village Police Officer David Pusick at the Crivitz Village Hall and brought $1200 in cash and a $100 check from Frank Porth.  Another meeting was set up for Friday at 7 PM at the Village Hall to turn over goods Maki had purchased with Booster Club funds.  

Maki did not come to the meeting and she was arrested that night for fraud and theft.  She was released from jail on Sunday, Sept. 29th.  That evening Maki turned an additional $3,006.05 over to the Village of Crivitz Police Department and returned several items that had been purchased.  Busick kept items she thought could be returned, however, several items were used and of no value to the Booster Club so those items were not accepted back.  

Maki also returned the check ledger she previously reported as being burned.

At this point it is determined missing are $6115 from bags tourney, $1000 check to Maki for bean bag raffle winner, $875 in cash from concession money bags from last year Maki stated she deposited, however, there is no matching deposit, $5241.05 in concessions, $460 cash withdrawlal and $1100 cash withdrawlal both supposedly for concession money bags, $1487.63 cash withdrawlal, $72 in purchases at Witt's Piggly Wiggly, $1840.03 in checks to Sams Club and $1433.64 in checks to Wal-Mart.  The total is $19,552.35, to date she paid back $7,066.13 in addition to a check for $5,000 received from her mother today, leaving a remaining balance of $7,558.22.

The balance in the checkbook today is $18,033.38.

A new system is now in place where all concession stand money goes immediately to the bank night deposit and will be verified by Busick the next morning.
