The Allegheny County District Attorney's Office has charged the former president of a western Pennsylvania volunteer fire company with stealing nearly $5,800 from various fundraiser, or by using the department's credit card to buy gasoline and pizza for himself.
Chester Yurkovic, 56, was scheduled to surrender on the charges filed Monday.
A criminal complaint indicates Imperial Volunteer Fire Department officials suspected Yurkovic of stealing and photographed money he was supposed to deposit from a T-shirt sale. He was suspended in February after $650 was missing from what should have been an $856 deposit.
Detectives said Yurkovic stole $5,779 from the fire company between 2011 and when he was suspended as president.
