Money stolen from Orleans County club not part of scholarship fund

Niagara Gazette — A follow-up investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office has determined that money stolen from the Shelridge Country Club earlier this month was not part of a scholarship fund established in memory of a local Marine killed two years ago.

Jacqueline King, 63, Medina, who was a country club employee, was arrested on July 9 and charged with the theft of $800. Initially it was reported that the money was part of a scholarship fund in honor of U.S. Marine Sgt. Trevor Cook, who was a native of Lyndonville. The fund benefits from a memorial golf tournament in Cook’s name that was held at Shelridge Country Club on July 5.

Follow-up investigation has since determined that the stolen money was the property of Shelridge Country Club and was not part of the fund, authorities said.
