Ex-Pleasanton Youth League President Accused of Embezzling

The former president of a youth baseball league in the San Francisco Bay Area has been arrested on suspicion of embezzling more than $20,000 and using some of the stolen funds to take his family on a trip to Disneyland.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Jeremy Lee Cardera was taken into custody Thursday and held on $20,000 bail. He could face charges of embezzlement and passing a bad check, both felonies.

The 35-year-old resigned as head of the Pleasanton American Little League in December as officials began asking him about suspicious transactions in the league account.

Police say Cardera tried to repay the league by writing a personal $20,000 check, but there were insufficient funds to cover the amount.

It's not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
