November 26, 1986

The mayor pro tem of Moorpark, who until recently worked as a postal clerk, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on a charge of embezzling $5,500 in Postal Service funds, federal prosecutors said. Danny Woolard, a city councilman since 1984, is accused of stealing money from "what he'd take in in his till," Assistant U.S. Atty. George B. Newhouse said. He said the allegation is unrelated to Woolard's work on the council. Woolard told reporters that he would plead innocent but would not comment "until such time that any charges are substantiated or proven in a court of law. I have no intention of resigning from the Moorpark City Council." The shortage in Woolard's cash transactions was revealed by audits, Newhouse said.
