MINERSVILLE -- A former treasurer is accused of stealing thousands from a softball team in Schuylkill County.
Michelle Polatz was treasurer of the New Minersville Fire Company's softball team. She's accused of using the team's ATM card and altering checks to take $9,000 for her personal use.
The woman from Port Carbon faces fraud and theft charges in Schuylkill County.
A previous version of this story incorrectly indicated that Polatz was treasurer of the New Minersville Firehouse Bikers and stole from that organization.
