Charles Lorenzen theftStaff Report

PASO ROBLES – Charles Lorenzen resigned from his position as the Building, Parks and Streets Maintenance Supervisor for the City of Paso Robles on Sept. 17, according to Paso Robles City Manager Jim App.

Although Lorenzen, a Paso Robles city employee since July 2000, has not been officially charged with any crimes, officers with the Paso Robles Police Department received a report of possible criminal activity that he may be involved with. Allegations include mis-use of a city credit card, according to sources.

“There is a pending criminal investigation for theft,” App said. “That is the full extent of what the city can comment upon,” he said.

“It is an open investigation,” Paso Robles Chief of Police Robert Burton said. “We are currently looking at the case.”

Burton said if his department finds there is clearly criminal activity involved, the information will be shared with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s office for review and to determine if charges against Lorenzen will be filed.
