The Los Alamos Monitor reports that Tabatha Jones of White Rock, New Mexico, was arrested last week and charged with embezzlement over $2,500 and under $20,000.

Her arrest comes after Jones began facing questions in August regarding fees and other financial issues in connection with the Los Alamos Youth Football and Cheerleading League. Jones was a board member of the group.

The Los Alamos league includes about 80 children, ages 4 to pre-adolescent 13-year-olds.

Los Alamos police say Jones faces faced a similar charge in 2005, but prosecutors did not pursue the case.

It was unclear if Jones has an attorney.
