A warrant has been issued in the Associate Court of Madison County for Chad A. Reeves of Marquand, Missouri.
According to the complaint, Reeves, 35, was a former president of the Madison County Boys Baseball League, and had been responsible for the collection of monies, deposit of monies, and financial reports for the league during his term in office; and allegedly appropriated $2,077.80 between April 26, 2011 and June 1, 2011, which was the property owned by the Madison County Boys Baseball League, without their knowledge or consent for the purpose of personal gain.
According to the Probable Cause Statement filed by Detective Rebecca McFarland with the Madison County Sheriff’s Department; Reeves collected registration fees for the Madison County Boys Baseball League at Teen Town and failed to provide the league with financial reports and information needed to order supplies, therefore, making the league suspicious.

Reeves had possession of the finances for the league until he turned it over to them on June 1. Upon receiving the financial reports, it was noted that the bank account for the league was missing over $2,000.
