Danville Co-Principal Charged With Embezzlement

Feb 23, 2015

State police say the co-principal of the Danville School has been arrested for embezzling almost $1,600.

Edwin Webbley, 60, was seen on video footage removing cash and checks from a school safe, police said.

The money and checks had been placed in the safe on the evening of Feb. 13 and was discovered missing on Feb. 16. Superintendent Matt Forrest told police that he reviewed video camera footage that showed a man removing money from the safe. The man was identified as Webbley.

Webbley previously worked as co-principal at Vergennes High School. He left that post last spring to take the job in Danville. While working at Vergennes, he was cited  for driving under the influence. In that February, 2012 incident, police reported that his wife called officers after Webbley crashed his car into his garage.
