DOVER, Del. (AP) - A former Dover High School teacher and volunteer booster for the school’s wrestling team has been charged with theft and misuse of a payment card, police said.

Brian Ogbin turned himself in Friday and was released on $20,000 unsecured bond, authorities said.

Ogbin’s arrest follows an investigation into the wrestling team booster’s account. Investigators say they found that a debit card issued to Ogbin for disbursing funds to the wrestling team was used twice at Dover Downs Casino, for a total of $510.

Authorities say there were also cash withdraws at a local convenience store on three occasions, totaling $220.

Finally, officials say more than $800 in profit from a wrestling fundraiser for which Ogbin was responsible was not added to the wrestling account and was missing.

Authorities say the alleged activity took place between September 2015 and Feb. 9 of this year.

Ogbin declined to comment when reached by telephone Monday.

Capital School District Superintendent Dan Shelton and Dover High School Principal Courtney Voshell said Monday that Ogbin was no longer a school employee.

School board minutes indicate that Ogbin resigned on Feb. 12.
