Police are looking for a man they say defrauded families and businesses in St. Marys out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
47-year-old Richard Danz allegedly stole more than $561,000 from the Elk County Humane Society while he was the agency’s treasurer and accountant.
While working as a financial advisor for a family, he allegedly deposited $9,000 into his own bank account instead of sending the checks to the family.
He also allegedly deposited a $3,000 check from an insurance company into his own bank account instead of an auto repair shop, which was supposed to get the money for fixing his Mercedes Benz.
A warrant has been issued for Danz’s arrest. Police believe he has left the area.
