San Joaquin Deputy District Attorney Stephen Taylor hears it all the time, almost exactly the same way: They were like family. We trusted them.

And every time, that was a critical mistake.

    Darn shame these folks decided to embezzle from their employers. The trouble is some of these folks are caught, do time, and then unsuspecting business people hire them again! Fairly easy to do some background checks. When it comes to money, trust no one and get another set of eyes.

    I agree with your comments JP. How ridiculous for these men to state such "facts" when they are not profilers, nor do these "facts" apply to all embezzlers. Did the reporter just catch them on a bad day or do they really believe this to be true? Good gravy - is our police department really that superficial to assess an embezzler as "fat" and "crazy" woman???????Wow............
