The Dover Police Department charged a Dover High School employee and wrestling booster volunteer with Theft Under $1,500 and Unlawful Use of Payment Card Under $1,500 following an investigation into missing funds from the Dover High School Wrestling Booster’s Account. The investigation showed that a debit card issued to Brian Ogbin (46) for the purposes of disbursing funds for the wrestling team was used twice at Dover Downs Casino for a total of $510. There were also cash withdraws at a WAWA convenience store on three separate occasions, totaling $220.
In addition to the misuse of the debit card, investigators also discovered that profit was missing from a wrestling fundraiser that Ogbin was responsible for. The fundraiser cost $3,356.00 and made $4,159.00-an $803.00 profit. After reviewing documents associated with the fundraiser and bank documents, it was determined that the profit was not added into the wrestling account at any point.
Ogbin turned himself in to the Dover Police Department on the morning of April 1, 2016 and was released by Justice of the Peace Court 7 on $200.00 unsecured bond.
