Trial Date Set for Accused Thief of Local Emergency Corps

A trial date has been set for April 23, 2018 in the case of Clint Penzel.

Penzel was indicted in October for stealing approximately $104,300.81 from the San Angelo Emergency Corps.

Stealing more than $30,000 but less than $150,000 is a Third Degree Felony, of which the 20-page indictment has accused him of.

He denied all charges.

Penzel owned Floors Unlimited and also served as the treasurer for the Emergency Corps. He was a volunteer for nearly five years.

He was fired from his position as treasurer, two days after being arrested.

The allegations of theft came from the president of the Emergency Corps, David Behrend, after he discovered that the organization’s financial documents had been tampered with.

It appeared that amounts in the financial reports had been altered and that Penzel had written and signed checks to his own company, Floors Unlimited.

Behrend also discovered that Penzel made ATM withdrawals from the organization while in California and Arizona.
