Treasurer Accused of Taking $4,500 From Boy Scouts
TOMS RIVER — A Boy Scout treasurer was indicted in the alleged theft of $4,545 in cash and purchases from the troop's account.
A grand jury subpoena of Boy Scout Troop No. 57's TD Bank showed revealed that Louis Freund, 52, of Toms River withdrew about $3,850 from the account via ATM and made another $695 worth of purchases from various retailers, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley Billhimer.
Freund was first charged last October by Billhimer. According to a complaint obtained by NJ.com, he spent the money at a liquor store, Amazon and Quick Chek.
