Arrest warrant issued for woman accused of theft


BISMARCK — A Henning woman accused of stealing from the Vermilion Valley Youth Football and Cheerleading Board  was a no-show for her arraignment. Now, there’s an arrest warrant out for Josie Wright.

People say Wright was on the board when she took the money from the program. She’s charged with theft greater than $500.

Wright isn’t the only person charged with stealing from youth sports in the community.

51-year old Lisa Makemson is accused of stealing nearly $4,000 from the Bismarck Little League Baseball Team. She’s charged with a felony and faces up to five years in prison.
