Missing Breck’ attorney may face more charges
BRECKENRIDGE ” A missing Breckenridge attorney accused of stealing up to $1 million from clients could face additional charges after a detective turns over more information to prosecutors, police say.
Royal “Scoop” Daniel was last seen on April 27. After an initial search by friends and police, authorities issued a warrant for his arrest on two counts of theft, alleging he never returned clients’ money from real estate transactions.
A Breckenridge detective is still working full-time on the case, combing financial records and bank transactions, Assistant Police Chief Greg Morrison said. Once his report is turned over to the district attorney, additional counts could be filed in the next several weeks, Morrison said.
The state Supreme Court suspended Daniel’s law license in May.
