A board member of a youth athletic club in Delaware County is accused of embezzling tens of thousands of dollars.Kevin Sang, 49, left the courthouse in silence Thursday morning after being charged with stealing $61,000 from the Norwood Athletic Club.

Sang was the vice president of the club's board of directors and ran the snack bar for the organization. It sponsors sports programs such as t-ball ,soccer and basketball for young people age five to 23.

Police say from 2003 to 2008 he siphoned money from the cash register as he sold snacks.

It was discovered when a new board member, who is also a Norwood police officer, noticed low profits and that there were no snack bar records being kept.

When that board member confronted Sang, he allegedly confessed to stealing $2,400. However, investigators say he stole about $61,000.

"It was Sang who was personally responsible for the day-to-day operation of the snack bar. It was Sang who peronally collected and deposited all cash generated by the snack bar. It was Sang who deprived the children, served by the Norwood Athletic Club, of the benefit of these monies," said Delaware County D.A. Michael Green.

Sang turned himself in Thursday morning. He has resigned from the athletic club.

Sang has since posted bail and has been released.
