Burlingame Public Works Department employee facing jail
March 28, 2014, 05:00 AM

Leopoldo Egcasenza

A 30-year Burlingame Public Works Department employee is facing up to 120 days jail for fueling up his personal vehicle at the city motor pool pump once a week for three years.

Leopoldo Gaudenico Egcasenza, 62, took 1,409 gallons of gas worth $5,107.93 between July 2010 and Oct. 26, 2013, according to prosecutors.

The improper fueling was discovered during a routine audit when a supervisor reportedly noticed Egcasenza gassing up during his off-duty hours and, after being confronted, admitted using the pump for his personal use.

On Wednesday, Egcasenza pleaded no contest to one felony count of theft of government property. In return, he was promised no more than 120 days jail when sentenced May 14. A judge may consider less if he makes full restitution by the sentencing date.

Egcasenza is free from custody on a $15,000 bail bond.
