Caltrans employees accused of theft of public funds
May 8, 2012
CHP officials said the six are suspected of falsely charging more than $100,000 in overtime and stealing 22 highway signs.
One of those charged, Phillip Taylor, had already retired from the Willow Springs Maintenance station about 10 miles north of the San Luis Obispo County line on Highway 1. The other five, Richard Johnson, Danny Millsap, Robert Eskridge, Kevin Liddiard, and Angelina Galvan — were employees at the time of their arrests.
All but one of the Willow Springs Maintenance station employees were arrested.
Officers transported the six former Caltrans employees to the Monterey County Jail where they are being held on $1 million bail each.
