A former employee of the YMCA of Greater Williamson County has been accused of embezzling more than $21,000 from the nonprofit sports association’s payroll, according to a Feb. 20 police report.

The possible suspect, 50-year-old Cynthia Ann Adams, has not been arrested or charged as of March 13, according to Williamson County court records. 

Round Rock police officers were called to the YMCA for a theft and “the reporting party stated that a former employee had embezzled $21,185.56 from the company via payroll checks without permission,” according to the police report. RRPD said it would not comment on the “ongoing investigation,” and the case is active.

Jeff Andresen, the YMCA location’s CEO, and Lucy Regimbal, the vice president of human resources, reported the alleged theft to the police.

The police listed an “audio CD of suspect confession” as a piece of evidence, according to the report. The Williamson County YMCA’s yearly revenues exceeded $25 million in 2016, according to its latest tax filings.

An attorney for the YMCA said the organization is “disappointed in having one of its employees take advantage of her position.”

“She was terminated immediately, and the police are awaiting further information from the courts,” the attorney said.

Reached by phone, Adams declined to comment before speaking with an attorney.
