PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. - The former Pueblo County Republican Party treasurer who is being accused of fraud in Colorado was arrested in El Salvador in a separate fraud investigation.

Our partners at The Pueblo Chieftain report that Fogg, 50, missed his Nov. 16 court appearance in Pueblo where he faces charges connected to stealing between $20,000 and $100,000 from the county and the misuse of a credit card while acting as treasurer between April 2013 and July 2015.
His trial date was scheduled for December 11.
