Fire department Chief John Yuknavich.
The U -S district court is charging Yuknavich with stealing more than five thousand dollars from the fire department he served over a three year period.
Investigators say he allegedly deposited only part of the monthly 35-hundred dollar check, and pocketed the rest.
The government has filed a plea agreement with Yuknavisch, calling for him to pay restitution of $45-thousand dollars and resign as chief.
That plea deal requires approval from district court.
