BOONE, N.C. — A former Appalachian State University student accused of embezzling money from his fraternity was arrested Thursday in Boone.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Curtiss Stafford, 24, of Boone, was acting treasurer of Alpha Phi Alpha’s chapter at ASU and wrote about 10 checks that added up to about $1,200, from May 18 to June 1, said Detective Kat Brackenridge.

Police charged Stafford with three counts of felony embezzlement. The Watauga County District Attorney’s Office will determine if additional charges will be filed, she said.

“He was making purchases and one (check) he actually wrote out to himself,” she said, according to the Journal.
