A Montgomery County man who served as treasurer for two youth athletic groups has been arrested for stealing $40,000 from the organizations.
Michael H. Hrouda, 36, of North Hills, was president and treasurer of the Abington Bulldogs Youth Wrestling club from 2008 until 2012. During those years, authorities said, he "withdrew cash from the Bulldogs' accounts for his own personal expenditures." Investigators said he took $14,000 without authorization.
Between June 2010 and July 2012, he also was treasurer of the Ardsley-North Hills Athletic Association, from whose accounts he also is charged with making numerous illicit cash withdrawals. He also took money from its PayPal account, police said. He is accused of taking more than $26,000 from the group's accounts.
