The treasurer for the Salina Masonic Temple Foundation is accused of theft and unlawful computer acts for allegedly embezzling $155,000 from the organization, Salina police Capt. Paul Forrester said.
Timothy Fowler, 38, of Solomon, [KS] became treasurer of the organization in July and allegedly embezzled the money between Aug. 25 and April 10 by writing checks to himself and his business, Solomon City Regalia, Forrester said.
Fowler allegedly made transactions on websites for airlines and hotels and visited adult websites. He also allegedly made transfers from one account to another, Forrester said.
Police were notified after a board member for the Salina Masonic Temple Foundation was told by a First Bank Kansas representative that the foundation's account was overdrawn.
Fowler could face charges of theft of more than $100,000 and unlawful computer acts.
