Jeff Fogg, who formerly served as the treasurer for Colorado's Pueblo County Republicans, missed his November 16 court date in the state for charges that he spent $20,000 of the party's funds. As a new report reveals, he was arrested just one day after missing that date in El Salvador under suspicion for a second, and much larger, fraud charge.

According to The Pueblo Chieftan, Fogg was arrested on November 17 in San Salvador, El Salvador under suspicion for a $100,00 fraud. As the Chieftan notes, the former treasurer owns property in the Central American country.

Due to missing his court date, a bench warrant was issued for Fogg, whose trial is supposed to begin December 11.

His Colorado charges center on accusations from the Pueblo County Republicans that he mis-used the party credit card and stole somewhere between $20,000 and $100,000 between April 2013 and July 2015.
