ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A cheerleading squad manager for a Catholic high school in Albuquerque is in custody on suspicion of embezzlement.
Albuquerque police say D’Andrea Davis was arrested and booked into jail Thursday.
They say Davis was a volunteer for the St. Pius High School cheerleader squad and managed it for about 10 years.
Her duties included ordering uniforms, scheduling practices, setting up competition dates and managing a winter fundraiser.
A police investigation showed that money Davis was collecting to pay for uniforms and other miscellaneous items allegedly was being deposited into her business account and not the school’s account.
Police say the total amount determined to be missing is more than $18,000.
It’s unclear whether Davis has legal representation yet.
