Fifty-two-year-old Marvin McCammon, of Wind Gap, Northampton Co., faces theft charges by Easton police for allegedly embezzling nearly $30,000.
He is the husband of the woman who had been nominated to become Bethlehem's first female fire chief, but she suddenly withdrew her name from consideration.
An arrest warrant for McCammon was issued Tuesday following an embezzlement investigation involving Pa. Water Rescue at 444 N. 13th St. in Easton.
The amount of money taken was $29,825 according to Inspector Matthew Gerould of Easton police.
The embezzlement was reported in August.
McCammon is being charged with theft by deception, theft by failure to make required disposition of funds received and receiving stolen property.
He is expected to surrender to law enforcement officials Wednesday.
Police said the investigation is closed and no other arrests are anticipated.
The suspect is the husband of Jacqueline Lilley-McCammon.
She was the original nominee to become Bethlehem's fire chief by then Mayor-elect Robert Donchez, but eventually withdrew her name.
Donchez refused to comment on whether the investigation into the alleged theft by Marvin McCammon had any bearing on his wife's decision to withdraw as his appointee.
