A 51-year-old Somerset woman, who allegedly stole nearly $35,000 from the Somerset-Berkley Regional High School Athletic Boosters Club, was officially charged this morning with larceny over $1,200 by a single scheme, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn IIII announced.
A criminal complaint against Dulce Pacheco issued this morning in Fall River District Court. The defendant will be summonsed into court to be arraigned on the charge on March 18 in Fall River District Court.
The defendant, who was the Treasurer of the Somerset-Berkley Regional High School Athletic Boosters Club, is alleged to have stolen $34,500 from the private non-profit group. It is further alleged she then used the stolen money to pay off her mortgage.
The matter was investigated by Assistant District Attorney Michael Scott, who is the Chief of DA Quinn’s Financial Crimes Unit. Officer James Roberts, who is the School Resource Officer at the high school, also assisted in the investigation.
Since the defendant has yet to be arraigned in open court, more information on the specific facts of the case cannot be released publicly at this time.
