Niantic Park Board President Accused Of Embezzling Funds

(Niantic, IL) -- The Niantic Park Board president stands accused of embezzling thousands-of-dollars from the park district. Vicki Barnes admitted to taking more than three-thousand-dollars over the past year-and-a-half, saying she had done so much for the park district and recently fell on hard times and thought the district owed her money. The Niantic Park District had 22-grand in the bank when the 52-year-old Barnes took over the checkbook as treasurer two years ago and now has a paltry balance of 782-bucks. She faces a preliminary charge of theft of government funds.
