CHOMO PORNSOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) — South Lake Tahoe Fire Captain Mark Wygant has been arrested and placed on paid admin leave according to City officials.

The City of South Lake Tahoe made the announcement via press releases Friday afternoon.

Officials say Wygant was arrested Thursday, January 29, pending results of a federal criminal investigation.

When the City first received an internal tip of a potential crime regarding a City employee, officials say they worked aggressively and collaboratively with federal and local law enforcement agencies to fully investigate the allegations.

According to El Dorado County Sheriff’s records, Wygant was booked into jail — and later released — for alleged Sexual Exploitation of Children.

As this matter is an ongoing federal investigation, any further inquiries are to be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven otherwise.
