A treasurer of a popular West Coast speedway has been charged with stealing more than $6000 in club cash.

Tania Dawn Lind, 33, was a volunteer with Sunset Speedway in Westport.

But now she has been charged with stealing club funds on January 10, February 7, March 18, and April 15 this year.

The amounts were for $3144, $1214, $800, and $1480, totalling $6638.


Lind, a manager now living in Christchurch, received a registrar's remand without having to appear before a judge at Christchurch District Court today.

She will be back in court on November 17.

Club president Chris McSherry said Lind is no longer affiliated with the club.
