A Columbus man who is treasurer of a local shooting club was indicted Friday by a Delaware County grand jury for allegedly withdrawing club money for personal use.

Mark B. Snodgrass, 63, of 4175 Lawnview Drive, Columbus, was indicted on two counts of theft, which are fourth-degree felonies, and one charge of tampering with records, a first-degree misdemeanor.

An arraignment has not yet been scheduled in Delaware County Common Pleas Court. Judge David Gormley will preside over the case. A summons to appear in court has been issued to Snodgrass, court documents said.

Prosecutors said Snodgrass had been the treasurer for the Big Walnut Conservation Club, located on 12211 Hartford Road in Sunbury, for at least 15 years in an unpaid voluntary position.

“Mr. Snodgrass is alleged to have withdrawn club money, without permission, for personal use,” said Delaware County Prosecutor Carol O’Brien. “The total loss is estimated at $21,133.27.”

The indictment states the crimes occurred between Jan. 2, 2015, and March 22, 2016.

The club offers club skeet, five-stand and trap shooting.

According to the Ohio Revised Code, the penalties for a fourth-degree felony include between six and 18 months in prison and a fine of no more than $5,000.
