Huntsville police said Thursday there's no evidence to support claims of theft and embezzlement from the LGBTQ group Free2Be.
Charges won't be filed against James Robinson, the group's founder and former CEO, or director of operations Barry Jackson, a police department spokesman said.
A Free2Be representative filed a report with the Huntsville Police Department Wednesday morning claiming Robinson and Jackson embezzled thousands of dollars from the organization. Police said there's no evidence to support those claims.
According to the Governor's Office, Free2be has been under heavy scrutiny since March, when a routine review revealed the nonprofit was in federal debt with the IRS for payroll taxes. Free2Be was placed on high risk status and their assets were frozen pending an investigation and audit.
The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs confirmed that since 2014, Free2Be has received $1.7 million in funding through various federal grants.
