CLAREMORE, Okla. -- A Claremore man is out on a $2,000 bond after being accused of embezzling money from the Girls Softball Association.

Investigators filed charges against Timothy Hasslebring on Wednesday.

Board members with the softball association tell 2 Works For You, Hasselbring was an umpire who allegedly pocketed roughly $5,600 from the softball association over the past two years. 

Board members said once Hasslebring started avoiding questions about the league’s account, they found out he was embezzling money.  They said while investigating checkbooks, it showed Hasselbring wrote checks as big as $2,000 to himself.

League officials said many parents donated money to get a new tractor for the softball field, concessions and other field improvements.

Officials said the league barely made ends meet last year, because Hasselbring stole funds. Board members said although they can’t get the stolen money back, they're glad Hasslbring is finally being held accountable for his actions.

Jail records show Hasslebring was arrested Friday night and bonded out of the Rogers County Jail an hour after his arrest. However the investigation is ongoing. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available on air, online and on our 2 works for you app.
