STOCKTON — The Lodi Professional Firefighters Union is one step closer to being made whole again after Oscar Picazo, the former firefighter and union treasurer accused of embezzling almost $300,000 from union accounts, paid another $20,000 of the missing funds Friday morning.

“It’s very gratifying because we don’t always see that on embezzlement cases,” San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor said. “We’re only having about a 50 percent recovery in general for embezzlement cases. They are (the defense) telling us that they are going to have all of it returned by June.”
