Dunkirk man charged with stealing from midget football league

MAYVILLE – The former treasurer of the 10-team Lakeshore Midget Football League was arrested earlier this week and forced to fully refund the $4,785 in league funds he had been using to pay off personal debts, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office reported Friday.

Allen B. Carlson Jr., 41, of Vanburen Road, Dunkirk, was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny.

He faces proceedings in Chautauqua Town Court next month.

The Lakeshore League is composed of teams from Sherman-Ripley, Chautauqua Lake, Bemus Point, Southwestern, Frewsburg, Cassadaga, Brocton, Westfield, Falconer and Panama.
