The former president of the Green Little League has been arrested and charged with using of thousands of dollars of league funds for personal gain, according to the Summit County Sheriff's Office.

In August 2016, the Summit County Sheriff's Office was notified that the Green Little League program had more than $10,000 missing from its account. Through an investigation, the Sheriff's Office determined that Timothy C. McCloud, 46, of Green, had been co-mingling his personal funds with little league funds and he had used more than $27,000 of Little League funds for personal gains.

According to Summit County Sheriff's Office Inspector William Holland, McCloud began pilfering money from league funds in April 2014, adding that several transactions had taken place based on an analysis of the Green Little League accounts.

McCloud has been arrested and charged with theft (fourth-degree felony) and money laundering (third-degree felony) and was booked into the Summit County Jail.

Green Little League is not affiliated with the 650-member Green Baseball Softball Federation (GBSF), according to its president Rick Yohman.

"Green Little League is not related to the Green Baseball Softball Federation. I just want to make sure our parents and the businesses who support us know that this does not effect us at all," Yohman said.
