Former sheldon high school wrestling coach -- who is now a school administrator in marcola... is facing theft charges.
Thanks for joining us tonight.
I'm matt templeman.
As we told you at four, eugene police say he stole from a fundraising account for the sheldon wrestling team.
Now -- kezi 9 news reporter michael sevren joins us live... to tell us how this news has left some parents in shock.
Matt renee travis tubbs left the 4j school district last year and is now the assistant principal at mohwak middle senior high school.
The superintendent tells me he on leave until further notice.
Carol free's granddaughter goes to the school.
She tells me she can't believe the allegations against tubbs.
She tells me they have always had a positive experience with tubbs since he joined the marcola school district last year.
Police say tubbs used money from the wrestling fundraiser account for personal use over a two year period.
4j district leaders say the account is used to help purchase equipment and pay for entry fees.
Anytime that i have ever had an issue, personal issue, or an emotional issue or school issue he takes private time out for we had a lot of one on one with him and i'm saddened to hear any of this i hope nothing is true.
Police have not said how much money they believe he took.
But say the definition for the charge of first degree theft mean it's a thousand dollars or more.
4j district leaders say they hope to get the money back.
Coming at 6 find about the other roles tubbs has had at the 4j school district.
