A husband and wife who owned a Mahopac towing company have been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $50,000 by overcharging customers.
New York State Police from the Hawthorne barracks arrested Frank Inzano, 47, and Shannon Inzano, 42, both of Carmel, on Tuesday, May 21 and charged them with attempted criminal possession of a weapon, grand larceny, offer to file a false instrument, and criminal tax fraud, said New York State Trooper AJ Hicks.
The duo, who owned Top Notch Towing in Mahopac, became the target of an investigation after a complaint was received regarding the business billing customers exorbitant charges for services, Hicks said.
The State Police in conjunction with the state Department of Taxation, the Putnam County District Attorney, and the New York State Department of Transportation conducted the investigation which found the Inzano’s allegedly stole more than $50,000 using fraudulent billing practices, possessed five illegal handguns, and committed tax fraud, Hicks said.
The Inazano’s were arraigned before the town of Carmel Court, and released on their own recognizance to reappear on June 24.
