A Man From Sherwood Is Accused Of Stealing More Than $700,000 From An Oregon Youth Baseball Group


Oregon City, Oregon — They arrested a man from Sherwood on Wednesday because they think he stole $700,000 from a youth baseball group.

A Washington County Grand Jury indicted 52-year-old Terrence Haimoto on Tuesday on several charges linked to the alleged theft of money.

Officials say Haimoto was the Treasurer of the Sherwood Junior Baseball Organization (JBO) when the organization’s new president found some problems with the money.

The head of the Sherwood JBO then hired an outside company to do an audit. He then gave the audit’s results to detectives, which led to an investigation by the Sherwood police. From 2017 to present, detectives found suspicious money movements. These included transfers of money from the Sherwood JBO to Haimoto’s own accounts, which he then spent at casinos in Washington and Oregon.

Detectives found more “suspicious transactions” that had to do with Haimoto’s other job as Treasurer for the State Junior Baseball Organization.

Detectives said Haimoto had stolen more than $700,000 since 2017.

Three counts of first-degree theft and seven counts of first-degree severe theft were brought against Haimoto. He is currently being held at the Washington County Jail.
