Windsor woman arrested, charged with stealing over $25,000 from South Windsor Moms Club

SOUTH WINDSOR - The president and treasurer of the South Windsor Moms Club was arrested after police said she stole thousands of dollars from the organization for her personal use.

The Moms Club is an organization that raises money for different charities throughout the year.

Police said she stole up to $25,000, a large chunk of money that not only impacted the club but other charities as well.

Ashley Womack, 33, of Windsor has been charged with first degree larceny.

According to her arrest warrant, there is a long list of stores and companies where she used that money.

FOX61 went to get her side of her story but no one came to the door.

Attorney Cody Guarnieri spoke on behalf of the club's members.

"My understanding from the documentation I’ve seen that’s part of the arrest warrant affidavit was that it was happening for an extended period of time," said Cody Guarnieri of Brown Paindiris & Scott, LLP.

One year ago, another member of the club volunteered to be the treasurer but it never worked out.

February of this year, police said Womack showed a fake email to everyone "indicating it was too late in the fiscal year to elect a new treasurer."

The warrant said members of the club became suspicious in April when their payment checks bounced and several charities said they never received their donations.

"The moms club members have had to rally which they have done in order to put on their sales to make good with all of their vendors, with all of their sellers so that they can maintain the trust that everybody has in the organization," added Guarnieri.

When Womack was asked to discuss this in person by others, police said she made excuses.

That same month, police said paramedics found Womack slumped over in a chair inside the South Windsor United Bank.

Footage later showed her "pouring medication from a bottle into her hand and swallowing large amounts of pills with drinks of a vodka bottle."

The warrant then said before she passed out, "Womack began group texting her and the other Executive Board members incoherently stating she was sorry and never deserved their friendship."

"It’s a relatively tight-knit group of people and so, I think that there’s that sense of betrayal that’s associated with this kind of theft from this kind of small community non-profit organization," added Guarnieri.

Womack was released after she posted her $25,000.
