In August of 2020, The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office forwarded a criminal complaint to the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station Investigations Bureau regarding an Embezzlement incident that occurred in the city of Canyon Lake. During this complex and lengthy investigation, Investigators revealed that 78-year-old Robert Templeton from Canyon Lake who was the Treasurer for a local Non-Profit Travel Club, diverted club funds into his personal bank account from January of 2017 through December of 2019. Investigators found fifty-six transactions during this period for non-business purposes, totaling over $24,000.00.
