Totally screwed up article, first it says it was a man, then it states that "she" withdrew funds, and then it mentions a Boy Scout Pack.

We live in an era of instant online news.  

Unless you're on a professional news site like nyt.com or wsj.com, you shouldn't be surprised that articles aren't researched, fact-checked, or edited for consistency and grammatical correctness. 

Quality is not the hallmark of today's newspaper alternatives.

Check it before it goes to the compositor.   Not any more, just get it out and fill the band width....
