Roseville Youth Soccer officials notified police in November of their suspicions that their former treasurer, Heather Sanford, had stolen a substantial amount of money from the youth sports organization from 2011 to 2012, according to a Police Department news release.
An investigation by Roseville detectives developed probable cause to arrest Heather and Christopher Sanford. According to police, the investigation uncovered evidence that Heather Sanford had written checks on the organization's account to her husband, made cash withdrawals and used the organization's debit card to purchase items for their personal use.
