Nearly 40 Members and Associates of Bandido Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Charged in Three Districts for Alleged Drug and Firearm Offenses

September 28, 2011

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on September 27, 2011 released the following:

“WASHINGTON— Nearly 40 members and associates of the Bandido Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (BOMG) were arrested yesterday and today on various firearms and drug-related charges in three judicial districts as part of a coordinated law enforcement effort, announced the Department of Justice and the FBI.

Twenty-eight individuals were charged in the Northern District of Texas in six complaints unsealed today in Dallas with conspiracy to possess and to distribute heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine. One of the defendants was charged with possession of a machine gun. All of the defendants were arrested around the Dallas area, except for one individual, who was arrested in San Francisco today. The defendants will make initial appearances tomorrow in U.S. federal court.

In addition, eight individuals who are members or associates of the BOMG were charged in the District of Colorado with conspiracy and knowingly possessing with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and five kilograms or more of cocaine. Six of the individuals were arrested today in the Denver area, while one defendant was already in state custody and one is at large. According to court documents filed in U.S. District Court in Denver, the BOMG is a self styled “outlaw” motorcycle organization comprised of more than 2,000 members and associates with more than 90 chapters in the United States, Canada, Europe, and elsewhere.

Yesterday, FBI agents and local authorities arrested three San Antonio residents in the Western District of Texas as part of the coordinated takedown. San Antonio BOMG Sergeant-At-Arms Gerardo Gomez Jr., 29, aka “Bandido Junior Ray;” San Antonio BOMG member Jason Earl Morris, 33, aka “Sarge;” and Angel Cevallos, 40, were arrested on one charged count of possession with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine. According to the complaint and supporting affidavit filed in San Antonio, yesterday the defendants were engaged in a drug transaction with undercover agents in which the defendants agreed to sell five kilograms of cocaine for $100,000. The three defendants were arrested by FBI agents after initially fleeing the scene by car. They remain in federal custody.

Indictments and complaints are merely charging documents. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

The charge of possession with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine carries a mandatory minimum prison sentence of five years and a maximum prison sentence of 40 years, as well as a maximum $5 million fine. The charge of possessing a machine gun carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. If convicted of knowingly possessing with intent to distribute methamphetamine or cocaine, those defendants face a mandatory minimum prison term of 10 years, and a maximum of life in federal prison, as well as up to a $4 million fine.

The Dallas charges are the result of a multi-year investigation into the illicit distribution of drugs and firearms by the BOMG and its affiliated support clubs. The investigation was led by the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

The Colorado case is being investigated by the FBI and the Denver Metro Gang Task Force.

The San Antonio case is being investigated by the FBI; the DEA; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; the Texas Department of Public Safety, the Arlington, Texas, Police Department; the Austin, Texas, Police Department; and the Fort Worth, Texas, Police Department. The San Antonio Police Department also assisted in yesterday’s arrests.

The cases are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys from the Northern District of Texas, the Western District of Texas and the District of Colorado.”

Trio Indicted in an Alleged $12 Million Mortgage Fraud Scheme

September 26, 2011

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) on September 23, 2011 released the following:

“DENVER— Waunita Weingart, age 59, of Denver, Colorado; John Phillip Gallegos, age 29, of Seattle, Washington; and Alois Craig Weingart, age 58, of Denver, Colorado, were indicted by a federal grand jury in Denver on August 31, 2011, on charges of wire fraud and money laundering, United States Attorney John F. Walsh, FBI Special Agent in Charge James Yacone, and IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Sean Sowards announced. Waunita Weingart, John Phillip Gallegos, and Alois Craig Weingart were all arrested without incident on September 2, 2011. All three defendants have been advised of their rights, and the charges pending against them. They have also been arraigned.

According to the indictment, Waunita Weingart, John Phillip Gallegos (aka John Gallegos), and Alois Craig Weingart (aka Alois Weingart) repeatedly obtained mortgage loans for the properties located at 7786 Saxeborough Drive, Castle Rock, Colorado (Saxeborough) and/or 141 Lost Angel Road, Boulder, Colorado (Lost Angel), pledging the same properties again and again as collateral to each successive lenders without paying off the prior loans. For each new loan, Weingart, Gallegos, and/or Weingart made it appear as though the lender would obtain a first priority security interest in the subject property, knowing that the lender would not. Waunita Weingart, Gallegos, and Alois Weingart failed to have the mortgage deeds recorded promptly, if recorded at all.

Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart used several companies, each controlled by at least one of them, to facilitate their scheme. The companies were Escrow Closing Services, LLC, Paradigm Escrow and Title, LLC, Colorado County and Community Title, LLC, Real Estate Title, LLC, Transaction Coordinator Services, LLC, and G-4 Holding Company, LLC.

As borrowers, Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and/or Alois Weingart typically described each new loan as the refinancing of an existing loan secured by either the Saxeborough or the Lost Angel address, and would represent to the mortgage lenders that there was no more than one existing loan on the property.

Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart would provide false information and certifications to the mortgage lenders in order to ensure qualifying for the desired loans. This included overstating his or her true legitimate income and representing that he or she had high monthly earnings from employment at companies whose names were slight variations of “Transaction Coordinator Services, LLC”, which they controlled. Waunita Weingart and John Gallegos were licensed title insurance producers. On occasion, altered versions of Waunita Weingart’s license in support of loan applications for Craig Weingart were submitted, making it appear he was a licensed insurance producer, when he was not.

Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart sometimes used G-4 Holding Company, LLC as the mortgage broker, with Waunita Weingart or John Gallegos acting as the loan officer for the borrower in order to eliminate the need for an independent third party to gather loan documents for the lender. Through G-4 Holding Company, Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart were able to obtain credit reports from a credit reporting agency.

Due to the outstanding debts that would be revealed on the credit reports, Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart falsely represented that the debts listed on their credit reports were related to other properties and not Saxeborough or Lost Angel. This also made it appear that they owned numerous properties, whose value supported their substantial debit.

On occasion, Waunita Weingart and John Gallegos provided false social security numbers on their loan applications in order to hamper the lender’s ability to obtain their credit reports. Waunita Weingart and John Gallegos also used false social security numbers to open certain personal and business bank accounts.

Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart arranged for one of their own companies to serve as title insurance agent and/or settlement agent for the transactions. These companies, Escrow Closing Services, LLC, Paradigm Escrow and Title (Paradigm), Colorado County and Community Title (CCCT) and Real Estate Title, LLC, were purported to be independent to the transactions but were controlled by a combination of the defendants. Paradigm, CCCT, and Real Estate Title provided title commitments to the lenders prior to closing and would provide a payoff notice quoting an exact payoff figure to be provided to the lender in advance of the closing. CCCT and Real Estate Title, LLC would sometimes also provide title insurance policies to the lenders after the closing by the defendants. These policies were issued under the false pretense that the purported sole existing loan on the property had been paid off and the property was otherwise unencumbered.

At each closing, the loan proceeds would be sent to the settlement agent’s bank account to be distributed as the lender directed. Waunita Weingart, John Gallegos, and Alois Weingart did not reveal that these bank accounts were controlled by one or a combination of them. Instead of paying off the purported sole existing loan as directed, Waunita Weingart and John Gallegos misappropriated the proceeds and used them for the benefit of themselves and Alois Weingart and to perpetuate their fraudulent scheme.

“Mortgage fraud has had a devastating impact on our economy, and combating it is a high priority of this office, and the Department of Justice,” said U.S. Attorney John Walsh. “The FBI and IRS-CI did an excellent job of investigating this complex economic crime, which allowed the U.S. Attorney’s Office to obtain this indictment.”

“The FBI takes mortgage fraud very seriously and worked collaboratively with the Criminal Investigation Section of the Internal Revenue Service and the United States Attorney’s Office on this investigation,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge James Yacone. “The FBI will continue to pursue white collar criminal investigations that have such a large negative impact on our economy and community.”

“Honest and law abiding citizens are fed up with the likes of those who use deceit and fraud to line their pockets with other people’s money,” IRS Special Agent in Charge Sean Sowards said. “These individuals who engage in this type of financial fraud should know they will not go undetected and will be held accountable.”

Waunita Weingart faces 10 counts of wire fraud and five counts of money laundering. John Phillip Gallegos faces five counts of wire fraud and two counts of money laundering. Alois Craig Weingart faces five counts of wire fraud and one count of money laundering. If convicted, each defendant faces not more than 20 years’ imprisonment and up to a $250,000 fine for each count of mail fraud and not more than 10 years’ imprisonment and up to a $250,000 fine for each count of money laundering.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI).

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Linda Kaufman.

The charges contained in the indictment are only allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

This prosecution is part of President Barack Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force. President Obama established the interagency Financial Fraud Task Force to wage an aggressive, coordinated, and proactive effort to investigate and prosecute financial crimes. The task force includes representatives from a broad range of federal agencies, regulatory authorities, inspectors general, and state and local law enforcement who, working together, bring to bear a powerful array of criminal and civil enforcement resources. The task force is working to improve efforts across the federal executive branch, and with state and local partners, to investigate and prosecute significant financial crimes, ensure just and effective punishment for those who perpetrate financial crimes, combat discrimination in the lending and financial markets, and recover proceeds for victims of financial crimes.”

Environmental waste recycling company and 2 senior executives indicted by federal grand jury for fraud and international environmental crimes

September 19, 2011

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on September 16, 2011 released the following:

“DENVER — A local environmental waste recycling company, Executive Recycling Inc., its chief executive officer, and its former vice president of operations were indicted by a federal grand jury on Thursday on charges of wire and mail fraud, and environmental crimes.

Executive Recycling Inc., Brandon Richter, 36, of Highlands Ranch, Colo., who was the owner and chief executive officer, and Tor Olson, 36, of Parker, Colo., vice president of operations, were indicted by a federal grand jury on Sept 15. The indictment includes the following charges: wire and mail fraud; and environmental crimes in connection to the failure to file a notification to export hazardous waste; exportation contrary to law; and destruction, alteration, or falsification of records.

The indictments were announced by the following agency heads: U.S. Attorney John Walsh, District of Colorado; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Special Agent in Charge David M. Marwell; and EPA Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent in Charge Lori Hanson. The criminal defendants and a representative of the corporation have been summonsed to make their initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Denver on Sept. 22, where they will be advised of their rights and the charges pending against them.

According to the indictment, Executive Recycling was an electronic waste (e-waste) recycling business located in Englewood, Colo., with affiliated locations in Utah and Nebraska. The company collected e-waste from private households, businesses, and government entities. Executive Recycling was registered with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as a “Large Quantity Handler of Universal Waste.” Richter, as owner and CEO, was responsible for supervising all aspects of the company. Olson, the vice president of operations, was responsible for running day-to-day operations.

A significant portion of e-waste collected by the defendants was cathode ray tubes (CRTs). CRTs are the glass video display components of an electronic device, usually a computer or television monitor, and contain large amounts of lead. The defendants engaged in the practice of exporting e-waste, including CRTs, to foreign countries, including the People’s Republic of China. The defendants regularly negotiated the sale of e-waste to brokers who represented foreign buyers or who sold the e-waste overseas. The foreign buyers often paid the defendants directly. To transport the e-waste, the defendants used shipping cargo containers which were loaded at the company’s facility. The containers were then transported by rail to domestic ports for export overseas.

Executive Recycling appeared as the exporter of record in over 300 exports from the United States between 2005 and 2008, including at least 10 exports that departed from the Port of Tacoma, Wash. About 160 of these exported cargo containers contained a total of more than 100,000 CRTs.

Between February 2005 and continuing through January 2009, the defendants knowingly devised and intended to devise a scheme to defraud various business and government entities that wanted to dispose of their e-waste, and to obtain these business and government entities’ money by means of materially false and fraudulent pretenses. The defendants represented themselves on a website to have “extensive knowledge of current EPA requirements. The defendants falsely advertised to customers that they would dispose of e-waste in compliance with all local, state and federal laws and regulations. It was part of the scheme that the defendants falsely represented that they would dispose of all e-waste, whether hazardous or not, in an environmentally friendly manner. Specifically, the defendants falsely represented that the defendant company recycled e-waste “properly, right here in the U.S.” They also stated that they would not send the e-waste overseas.

The defendants’ misrepresentation induced customers to enter into contracts or agreements with the defendants for e-waste disposal. Each victim paid the defendants to recycle their e-waste in accordance with the representations made by the defendants. Contrary to their representations, the defendants sold the e-waste they received from customers to brokers for export overseas to the People’s Republic of China and other countries.

“The proper disposal of our electronic waste is not only critical today, but will also become more important in the future,” said U.S. Attorney John Walsh. “U.S. law requires proper disposal of this type of waste not only for the protection of Americans, but also so that we in the United States live up to our responsibility to be good international environmental stewards.”

“Our ongoing 30-month investigation included cooperation from law enforcement agencies in the United States, Hong Kong and Canada,” said David M. Marwell, special agent in charge of ICE HSI in Denver. “The investigation confirmed that Executive Recycling repeatedly and illegally exported used cathode ray tubes to China. In addition, Executive Recycling also made false promises to its customers who believed that Executive Recycling was properly disposing of their electronic waste. Homeland Security Investigations stands ready to prevent any company from circumventing U.S. controls to export hazardous waste.”

“As consumer demand for electronic goods continues to grow, communities and individuals will look for safe, recycling options for electronics that are no longer needed,” said Lori Hanson, Special Agent in Charge of EPA’s criminal enforcement program in Colorado. “EPA is committed to ensuring that companies that offer fraudulent recycling services, where e-waste is illegally shipped abroad, are caught and prosecuted.”

Potential Penalties upon conviction:

  • If convicted of wire fraud, the defendants face not more than 20 years in federal prison, and a fine of up to $250,000, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense, per count, for each of the 10 counts.
  • If convicted of mail fraud, the defendants face not more than 20 years in federal prison, and a fine of up to $250,000, or twice the gross gain or loss from the offense, per count, for each of the three counts.
  • If convicted of the one count of RCRA, the defendants face not more than two years imprisonment and a fine of up to $500,000, or either twice the gross gain or loss, or $50,000 per day of offense.
  • If convicted on the one count of smuggling goods from the U.S., the defendants face not more than 10 years in federal prison, and a fine of up to $250,000.
  • If convicted of one count of destruction of records during the course of EPA’s administrative process, the defendants face not more than 20 years in federal prison, and a fine of up to $250,000. The indictment includes an asset-forfeiture allegation, which states that upon conviction the defendants shall forfeit to the United States any and all property or proceeds derived from their illegal activity.

This case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Criminal Investigation Division.

The defendants are being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Suneeta Hazra and Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Lillian Alves, District of Colorado.

The charges contained in the indictment are allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until found guilty.”

Anthony Paul Breaux Indicted for Allegedly Defrauding Health Care Programs for Nuclear Weapons Workers and Miners

September 9, 2011

The Federal Bureau of Investigation on September 8, 2011 released the following:

“Palisade Man Indicted for Defrauding Health Care Programs for Nuclear Weapons Workers and Miners

DENVER— Anthony Paul Breaux, age 33, of Palisade, Colorado, made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Denver this afternoon where he was advised of the heath care fraud and money laundering charges pending against him. Today’s court appearance was the result of an indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Denver on September 1, 2011.

According to the indictment, in October 2009, Breaux created and was acting as a registered agent for Honor-Bound Healthcare Providers, a Colorado Corporation. Breaux owned 100 percent of Honor-Bound, and was in the business of providing home health care services to patients in Colorado, Oregon, Arizona, and elsewhere.

Part of Honor-Bound’s patients were nuclear weapons workers or miners, millers, and transporters. In order to be reimbursed for providing medical services to these individuals, Breaux billed Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program (EEOICP) or Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA). EEOICP is a health care benefit program that provides lump-sum compensation and health benefits to eligible Department of Energy nuclear weapons workers. RECA provides coverage to eligible uranium miners, millers, and transporters. Coverage is extended under both acts to certain eligible survivors with lump-sum compensation that would have otherwise been payable to the workers.

From June 2010 until June 2011, Breaux, doing business through Honor-Bound, allegedly knowingly and willfully executed and attempted to execute a scheme to defraud these health care benefit programs, by submitting and causing to be submitted bills for payment, knowing those bills already had been paid. In other cases the defendant submitted invoices for services never provided. He obtained payments on the claims in part by submitting false supporting documentation. In total, the fraud the defendant allegedly perpetrated is over $3.5 million.

Breaux also allegedly knowingly engaged in monetary transactions, or money laundering, of criminally derived property of a value greater than $10,000, which had been derived from specified unlawful activity. The indictment includes a notice of forfeiture, which states that upon conviction of one or more of the offenses, the defendant shall forfeit to the United States all of his interest in property, real or personal, that constitutes or is derived, directly or indirectly, from the gross proceeds traceable to the commission of the said violations.

“Congress established compensation programs for the men and women who worked in our nuclear weapons complexes and those who worked in dangerous mines,” said U.S. Attorney John Walsh. “To steal money from these funds is criminal, and the person responsible will be prosecuted vigorously by this office.”

“The EEOICP program was designed to provide compensation to persons who have become ill as a result of work at nuclear weapons facilities. The indictment alleges that the defendant submitted numerous false claims for medical services that had not been provided. The Office of the Inspector General will continue to work with the U.S. Attorney’s Office to combat fraud against Department of Labor programs,” said David Wickersham, Special Agent in Charge for the Dallas Region of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Inspector General, Office of Labor Racketeering and Fraud Investigations.

“IRS – Criminal Investigation provides financial investigative expertise in our work with our law enforcement partners,” said IRS – Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Sean Sowards. “Pooling the skills of each agency makes a formidable team as we investigate allegations of wrong-doing. This indictment demonstrates our collective efforts to enforce the law and ensure public trust.”

“The FBI takes health care fraud very seriously and worked collaboratively with the U.S. Department of Labor – Office of Inspector General, the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, and the United States Attorney’s Office on this investigation,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge James Yacone. “This investigation revealed fraud being committed against a federal health care program in excess of three million dollars. The FBI will continue to aggressively investigate violations regarding the healthcare system.”

If convicted of health care fraud and aiding and abetting, Breaux faces not more than 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000. If convicted of money laundering, the defendant faces not more than 10 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 or alternatively a fine not more than twice the amount of the criminal derived property, or both, for each of the 48 counts.

This case was investigated by the Department of Labor Office of the Inspector General (DOL OIG), the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

The defendant is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jaime Pena and Tonya Andrews.

The charges contained in the indictment are allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until found guilty.”

September 4, 2011

Kellogg paid the undercover agent $2,000 in cash to murder a Florida man with whom he was involved in a real estate transaction that resulted in civil court litigation. Kellogg had already paid an additional $6,000 for the hit. The Florida man had sued Kellogg, obtaining a multi-million judgment.

“As today’s sentence reveals, anyone attempting to hire a contract killer will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said U.S. Attorney John Walsh.

“This case demonstrates the FBI’s commitment to aggressively investigate all levels of violent crimes,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge James Yacone. “Mr. Kellogg’s criminal activity was thwarted through a quick and decisive investigation.”

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with the Denver Police Department assisting with the arrest.

Kellogg was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Brown.”
