Lake City investigators have charged the treasurer of the Lake City Fire Relief Association with embezzling more than $26,000.

He was arrested and appeared before a District Judge, where he was released on an unsecured bond.

The fire company released a brief statement on the department’s Facebook page that said in part,

“We are diligently working with investigators to resolve this matter and will have a statement released at a later time.”
