The offenses occurred over six years, from January 2005 to February 2011. Bishop said Van Tilburg had an account set up through the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
“He would use various methods to funnel money in and out of that account, ultimately to his own account,” Bishop said. “The investigation was rather difficult from a paper trail standpoint.”
The theft came to light when Van Tilburg was questioned about some missing wrestling mats, which he sold for $2,500.
“There was no check,” said Leo Fernandez, a forensic accountant with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation. “Nobody knew how it was paid for.”
