The money was left in the locker room area of the facility. Police say King was there watching her son play.

The money belongs to the patrons attending an event for Stride Hockey Players. Stride promotes adaptive athletic events for persons with disabilities. Three of the five victims were disabled persons.

The charge of petit larceny as a hate crime is due to the victim's disabilities.

The players say they were told by police that a woman was arrested with the money in her sock.
