Ex-Fish and Wildlife employee gets jail for fuel theft

LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) — A former employee of the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife who stole tens of thousands of dollars of fuel has been sentenced to three months in jail. The Daily News reports  Bob Woodard had worked for the department for about 25 years and was an IT specialist in the Southwest Washington region. Public affairs director Bruce Botka previously said an internal investigation found Woodard had used multiple fuel cards given to different employees to make fraudulent purchases starting in 2010. Woodard last week was sentenced to 90 days in jail for theft. He was also ordered to pay $57,000 to the Department of Fish and Wildlife in restitution. He was fired in 2017.
