RANGELEY, Maine — The former treasurer of Maine’s second-largest snowmobile club faces charges for allegedly stealing up to $54,000 from the club.
Rangeley police say 61-year-old Gail Gavigan of Dallas Plantation was charged with theft by unauthorized taking and theft by receiving stolen property in connection with unauthorized use of funds from the Rangeley Lakes Snowmobile Club. Gavigan resigned her position earlier this year.
Police Chief Dennis Leahy said club members paid for an audit of the books over the past three years after discovering checks were being written to accounts that didn’t have anything to do with the club.
The club has 430 members and grooms 150 miles of trails in the western mountains region.
