Joseph A. Schlosser (DOB 8/29/63) of 603 South Broad St., Clayton has been charged with theft of more than $22,000 from the Clayton Little League over a two-year period while he was the organization’s treasurer.
Schlosser was arrested by the Clayton Police Department late Tuesday and posted the required 10 percent of his $2,500 bail. He is charged with third-degree theft of $22,732.35. It is alleged the offense occurred between September 2008 and May 2011. The charges resulted from a two-month investigation by the Clayton PD and the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office major crimes unit.
The missing funds came to light in late spring after vendors to the children’s baseball league reported non-payment of bills and some checks bouncing. At that time, Schlosser, an auto mechanic and father of a Little Leaguer, was relieved of his treasurer’s duties. He had held an ATM card which it was learned had been used to make unauthorized withdrawals. It was also discovered that Schlosser had moved the Little League bank account from an institution where the league president had access to it, to another bank where only he could monitor the funds.
