Fultano's Pizza assistant manager convicted of theft
More than a year ago, in February 2018, a bookkeeper for Fultano's Pizza noted that one of the employees had been stealing money for at least the past five years. The employee, Daniel Christopher Gonzalez, who was the restaurant's assistant manager, admitted stealing about $50,000 for the last five to ten years, said Canby Police Lt. Jorge Tro.
He was convicted on June 7, 2019 of four counts of theft for a jail term of about four months, and was expected to get out on parole in late September. However, because of jail overcrowding, he was recently let out after spending the weekend in jail. He apparently was also fitted with an ankle bracelet so the court can keep tabs on him.
"He admitted to taking money from the register and was very apologetic to owner Guy Romaine," said Tro.
During his hearing, Gonzalez told the judge he would pay it all back through the court. Romaine told The Herald he already had received a check for $20,000 and expects $32,000 more.
