The founder of a Millersville non-profit swimming club is charged with taking nearly $40,000 from the club and using the funds for personal expenses - including a trip to Hawaii - and his other professional ventures.
Kyle Almoney, since removed by the board from association with Marauder Aquatic Club, is charged with three felonies: two counts of theft and forgery.
Millersville Borough police Detective Sgt. Jason Scott filed charges Tuesday with approval from the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.
District Judge Joshua Keller arraigned Almoney on Tuesday and set bail at $40,000 unsecured. Almoney, 39, is presumed innocent.
The police investigation involved an extensive review of financial records and accounts that showed Almoney was taking money from the Marauder Aquatic Club accounts and using it for personal expenses, to include:
- A trip to Hawaii with his wife
- Numerous bars/drinking establishments
- Rental vehicles
- Amazon purchases
Almoney also used club funds for The Ville Swimming Academy, which he also founded, and for associated costs when he was head coach of Millersville University’s women’s swimming team.
The thefts happened between 2015 and 2017, when Almoney was in charge of the Marauder Aquatic Club accounts.
Marauder Aquatic Club board members removed Almoney from association with the club, then reported to police what they believed were suspicious expenditures. The board reported that Almoney was using the funds for The Ville Swimming Academy and his work with the university team.
Police determined the theft totals to be $39,953.64.
