Cheshire resident indicted on fraud

From the NHRs Ann Dematteo:

The owner of a North Haven company has been indicted for his participation in an alleged scheme to defraud the developer of a New York shopping mall, according to U.S. Attorney Nora R. Dannehy.

A federal grand jury sitting in New Haven recently returned a 19-count indictment that charged Frank M. Ruocco Jr., 42, of Cheshire; Boris A. Tomicic, 37, of West Hartford and Ruocco’s company, Earth Technology Inc., with conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering offenses, Dannehy said. Ruocco and Earth Technology, an environmental contractor on Sackett Point Road, also are charged with obstruction of justice in connection with a federal grand jury investigation.

The charges stem from the defendants’ alleged participation in a scheme to defraud the shopping mall developer by submitting inflated invoices for the removal of contaminated soil and other items, Dannehy said in a prepared statement.
