On Thursday, patrol deputies arrested and booked 72-year-old James Patrick Seefried for Theft in the First Degree
In June of 2022, executive staff of the Moose Lodge Chapter 2423 at Dollars Corner found discrepancies in accounts related to the internal workings of the Lodge. Staff reported their suspicions related to the discrepancies to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office and patrol deputies began to investigate.
Working closely with Moose Lodge Chapter staff and representatives from the National Lodge and the Washington State Gambling Commission, patrol deputies continued to investigate throughout the summer. On December 1, patrol deputies arrested and booked 72-year-old James Patrick Seefried for Theft in the First Degree. Seefried is a former staff member for the Dollar’s Corner Chapter.
The Moose Lodge is an international, fraternal organization that provides service to the communities where its chapters are located. The theft in this case, just over $30,000, represents a significant loss to the chapter and impacts its ability to provide donations to the groups it serves. Additionally, this case represents the continued commitment of Clark County Sheriff’s Office Deputies to providing service to the residents of Clark County.
This case is still being investigated and no further information will be provided pending additional court proceedings.
