A former funeral director was charged with theft after Edcouch police say he stole money from elderly customers, Joangel Concepcion has more.

After months of investigating, Edcouch police arrested a man they say embezzled money from elderly customers at the Zavala Family Funeral Home. Former funeral director Marco Zavala was charged with theft on Tuesday morning  and is accused of stealing money from many clients. Police say several victims have come forward since the investigation started a few months ago and the majority of his victims were elderly customers.

Esbaldo Cardoza, who is the owner of the funeral home, contacted police after noticing several indescrepencies. Since the incident, Cardoza has hired a new funeral director and plans to change the name of the business. Cardoza stated that he is deeply saddened by the crime, but happy his customers are now in good hands.

The Zavala Funeral Home wants to make sure they honor anyone that was affected by the crime and they urge any customers, who have purchased funeral arraignments, to come by and review their contract.

So now like father like son olvaldo cardoza is practicing his fathers teachings on the funeral director gettting him out of the way by getting his puppets to make this allegations on the young man so he can get rid of him and he can take full control of the funeral home and he is brutally doing it not thinking on the families he is hurting and all the lifes that he is hurting and that are at stake god will grant you hell senor cardoza. todo se paga en esta vida .

Well I see cardoza is at it again ,which is his long time legacy he inherited from his father teachings of making false allegations on people that he did not want around after he had used and abused them he was at the time a trucker foreman of labor workers and he would not pay them so that is what most of us crop pickers from that time still remember ,he would not care to pay us our wages so our families would go with out basic needs such as food clothing, and shelter .
