ELKHORN—Prosecutors say a Walworth woman stole more than $3,000 over the last year from a local nonprofit snowmobiling club while she was the group's treasurer.

Cory Schuh, 43, of 312 High St., did not dispute claims from police that she made unauthorized charges and withdrawals in her role as the treasurer for the Blizzard Buzzers Club in late 2016 and 2017, according to a criminal complaint filed in Walworth County Court.

Schuh on Monday pleaded not guilty to a charge of theft in a business setting, court records show.

An official from the club submitted a theft complaint to village of Walworth police Oct. 28, according to the complaint. The official had noticed more than $1,000 missing from the club's checking account.

After the club's board emailed her asking about inconsistencies in reporting, Schuh on Oct. 26 replied and said she was ashamed, sorry and embarrassed by her actions, the complaint states. She said she would reimburse the club by Nov. 1.

The board's response to Schuh said they would have to go to the police, to which she asked if they could resolve it without involving authorities, according to the complaint.

There was a total of $1,847 in withdrawals and unauthorized charges to places such as Walgreens, TJ Maxx and Caribbean Sun Tanning, according to the complaint. There was also about $1,314 that was not deposited following a meat raffle.

Schuh, who had been the club's treasurer since June 2013, is next due in court for a status conference at 1:15 p.m. Jan. 25.
