EDMOND, Okla. – The President of Santa Fe High Schools’ Cheer Booster club is facing 8 possible counts of computer crimes.

Thursday, Edmond Police presented charges to the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Offices against Stacey Lynn Torre, 38.

Prosecutors say Torre is accused of charging $7,077.70 to a Santa Fe Cheer Booster Club checking account for expenses not related to the club.

Police say school district personnel noticed suspicious activity in its booster club financial reports, which prompted an investigation into the clubs expenses and finances.

Court documents show charges on bank statements to McDonald’s Taco Bell, Target, Walmart, 7-Eleven, Athletic Republic, The Donut Nest, Braum’s, Loui’s, and Burger King.

Investigators say there were also ATM transactions and overdraft fees, and that Torre was the only person authorized on the account.

According to police, there was a $122.87 charge for a hotel room in Arkansas.

In the court documents, police revealed that Torre checked in to the hotel with her ID, and tweeted  “Chilling in Razorback Country @ArkRazorbacks.”

Investigators say  there were seven $100 transactions made at Athletic Republic, a sports performance training facility that caters towards athletes.

The court papers also show Athletic Republic received a $200 check from an Edmond Santa Fe Cheer Booster Club account.

The Edmond School District has released a statement:

 “The alleged misconduct of one person is regrettable but is in no way indicative of the transparent way in which the other 65 sanctioned organizations in the district handle their accounts and conduct business annually. Edmond Public Schools sincerely hopes that the community continues to support these organizations that provide important services and opportunities for our students.”
