Man Who Ripped Off Emergency Districts Gets Probation

A man who managed several Bexar County Emergency Services Districts, taxing entities which provide fire services and other services in unincorporated parts of the county, today pled guilty to stealing $150,000 in taxpayer money, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports..

Gilbert Muniz Perez, 62, was sentenced to ten years probation, but a condition of that probation is he has to pay back every dime he stole.

Prosecutors say Perez concocted several schemes to rip off the ESDs, from putting personal expenses on ESD credit cards, to making duplicate reimbursement payments to himself, then cooking the books to hide it.

The case was cracked by the Texas Rangers, working with the Bexar County Auditor and District Attorneys investigators.
