Menlo Park employee guilty of stealing gas
June 07, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Juan Alvarez

A Menlo Park employee who prosecutors say used city gas pumps to fuel his personal vehicle for four months was sentenced to 60 days in jail after pleading no contest to felony embezzlement.

Juan Gonzales Alvarez, 52, of Menlo Park, reportedly used the pumps 23 times in 2012, taking 503 gallons valued at $1,786.35. During a search of his home, Menlo Park police reported finding a stolen Menlo Park police officer badge that had been attached to a jacket reported stolen.

Alvarez previously pleaded not guilty but accepted the plea offer the day of his scheduled preliminary hearing. In addition to the jail time, Alvarez was placed on three years supervised probation.

Alvarez has been free from custody on his own recognizance.

Last month, a former Burlingame Public Works employee also settled a similar gas theft case by pleading no contest to theft of government property and received 45 days jail.
