Menlo Park Public Works Department employee arrested for stealing gas
July 25, 2013, 05:00 AM

Menlo Park police arrested a city employee Tuesday for allegedly stealing about $1,800 in gasoline from the city’s corporation yard.

Arrested was Juan Alvarez, 51, who worked in the city’s Public Works Department, according to police.

In April of this year, police were advised by the Menlo Park Public Works Department that there was a suspected theft of fuel from the city gas pumps. The department initiated an investigation into the possible thefts and discovered that approximately $1,800 worth of fuel was stolen from the city fuel pumps over one and a half years.

Alvarez, who resides in Redwood City, was arrested for embezzlement, second-degree burglary and grand theft. He was released on bail.
