Former Union City little league treasurer accused of embezzling $30K

Bay Area

A former treasurer for a little league in Union City is accused of embezzling more than $30,000 from the organization. 

Nancy Morgan, 40,  allegedly misappropriated thousands of dollars from the Union City National Little League’s bank account.

“Amazon charges, through hotel stays, car rentals,” league president Veronica Perez said. “There’s cash that is unaccounted for.”

Perez said what Morgan did was detrimental to the organization.

“We are almost $15,000 in debt from last season,” she said. 

Morgan had allegedly been stealing for about two years before Perez became suspicious late last year. 

In August, Perez and other board members started questioning Morgan about the amount of money collected from fundraisers and how it was being spent. 

Perez said Morgan avoided the questions until the board pieced it all together. 

A police report was filed in September and the investigation spanned six months. 

Morgan was arrested in March and charged with felony embezzlement and grand theft. 

Since then, the league lapsed on payments to a storage facility and lost 60 years of equipment. 

The league is now down from 17 teams to 14 from last year. 

“Being a member of this community, and being a part of this league for the past 10 years, I want them to have a place to play, and hopefully they can continue to play,” Perez said. 

Morgan posted bail and is due in court in August for a pretrial hearing.
