MEDINA – A follow-up investigation by the Orleans County Sheriff’s Office has determined that money stolen from the Shelridge Country Club earlier this month was not part of a scholarship fund established in memory of a local Marine killed two years ago.

Jacqueline King, 63, of Medina worked at Shelridge. She was arrested on July 9 and charged with the theft of $800. Initially it was reported that the money was part of a scholarship fund in honor of U.S. Marine Sergeant Trevor Cook, who was a native of Lyndonville. The fund benefits a Memorial Golf Tournament in Cook’s name that was held at Shelridge CC on July 5.

Follow-up investigation has since determined that the stolen money was the property of Shelridge Country Club and was not part of the fund.
