St. Marys Embezzler Headed to Prison

The man who embezzled more than $400,000 from the Elk County Humane Society will spend the next four years in federal prison.

49-year-old Richard Danz was sentenced today in federal court in Erie. He pleaded guilty in April of last year to stealing from the St. Marys facility, where he volunteered as an accountant and treasurer until June of 2012. He then stole money from a private client to cover up the thefts from the shelter.

After FBI agents searched his St. Marys home in August of 2012 Danz uprooted his family and moved to North Carolina.
