A man accused of stealing thousands of dollars from the Boy Scouts turned himself in to Clovis Police Friday morning.
53-year-old Kevin Niederfrank, of Fresno, was arrested on suspicion of embezzling $73,000 from Boy Scout Troop 257, police spokeswoman Janet Stoll-Lee said.
Niederfrank served as treasurer of the organization from January 2010 through January 2012.
Police say they began to look into the case in February 2012 after members of the troop's board were notified by their bank that there were insufficient funds in the Boy Scouts' account.
Witnesses told police they believe a "gambling problem" led to the crime, Stoll-Lee said.
The troop's new treasurer says the Boy Scouts got all the money back.
Detectives have submitted the case to the District Attorney's Office.
