Newton Roller Hockey League president charged with theft of funds

NEWTON, NJ (Sussex County) – The president of the Newton Roller Hockey League has been charged with theft for allegedly using approximately $25,000 in league funds for personal purchases, according to Newton Police Lieutenant Robert Osborn.

James W. Krahling, 45, of Stillwater was arrested on Tuesday and was charged with third-degree theft of movable property.

A police investigation into Krahling revealed that he specifically used league funds for personal purchases.  The investigation started when another signatory on the league bank account observed unusual purchases, Osborn said.

Police discovered that Krahling had used the Newton Roller Hockey League debit card to purchase numerous things for himself, Osborn said.

Krahling was released pending an appearance in Sussex County Superior Court on March 27.
