Owner of Quincy based basketball program arrested on theft charge

QUINCY -- A former Quincy University standout and owner of a youth basketball training and select traveling team program who allegedly accepted payments for services but failed to honor agreements or issue refunds has been arrested on a charge of theft over $10,000.


Joel A. Box, 35, of Rockford, was arrested Wednesday and transported to Quincy where he is being held in the Adams County Jail on a $100,000 bond.


The Adams County Sheriff's Department said it and the Quincy Police Department were assisted by the Rockford Police Department in the arrest.


Several clients of Box's business Joel Box Evolution Basketball claim that he failed to hold workouts or start team activities despite parents paying hundreds of dollars.


One parent told The Herald-Whig that she lost $1,850 that she paid for workouts and a travel team for her daughter at the end of 2018, but that there were no workouts or practices.
