CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Bond was set Friday for 57-year-old Dennis Lott, the former president Exchange Club of Charleston.
Lott’s bond was set at $21,000 for breach of trust with fraudulent intent and fraudulent check charge.
Investigators with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office say Lott was arrested during a traffic stop last Friday
, after being wanted in connection to nearly $200,000 of missing funds from Coastal Carolina Fair accounts.
Authorities say the former Exchange Club of Charleston president allegedly wrote a $190,000 check to himself from a rainy day reserve fund for the fair and cashed it in July.
The organization says it gave more than $650,000 from last year's fair to charities in the area.
