West Columbia Police Arrests Woman for Stealing Soccer Team Money
Friday, July 22, 2011

WEST COLUMBIA, SC – The West Columbia Police Department has arrested a woman from North, S.C. for allegedly stealing funds from a local youth soccer club.

According to Chief Dennis Tyndall, Kimberly Denice Stripling, age 41, of 1721 Catalina Boulevard, North, S.C., was arrested on Thursday for Breach of Trust more than $2000, but less than $10,000. Stripling, who was employed with Grace Baptist Church, had served as Treasurer of the West Metro Soccer Club. The warrant alleges that over a period of approximately one year, Stripling, who had access to the club’s debit card and check book, used club funds for her personal use.

Investigators have learned that Stripling used between $23,000 and $28,000 of soccer funds in multiple jurisdictions to include Richland County, Lexington County and the Town of Lexington. Investigations in those jurisdictions are on-going and additional charges may be brought against Ms. Stripling. Police are asking that anyone with information concerning this case contact the West Columbia Police Department at 803-794-0721.
