Suspect in South Tahoe Pop Warner embezzlement case turns himself in

Christopher Klug

A South Lake Tahoe man suspected of embezzling money from the South Tahoe Pop Warner football program has turned himself in.

Christopher Klug, 25, turned himself in Friday, Lt. David Stevenson with the South Lake Tahoe Police Department told the Tribune.

The department announced Thursday afternoon that an arrest warrant had been issued for Klug, who was appointed president of the Pop Warner board in early 2017. A significant amount of money became unaccounted for following Klug's appointment as president of the nonprofit, which sponsors South Lake Tahoe youth football programs, according to police.

Klug was booked into the El Dorado County jail in South Lake Tahoe on a charge of embezzlement exceeding $400, a felony. His bail was set at $25,000, according to jail records.
