A Kendall area man with a history of violent, working-with-your-hands crime has been accused of a $1.5 million white collar scheme in a federal court indictment.
Edwin Garcia-Albarracin’s alleged victim: The U.S. Postal Service.
That’s why the 32-count indictment of Garcia-Albarracin, 45, includes 10 counts of mail fraud along with 10 counts of wire fraud and 12 counts of money laundering. The man also known as “Edwin Garcia” has a detention hearing on Tuesday.
The indictment says Garcia-Albarracin supported his claims by sending photographs of damaged products. Problem was, prosecutors claim, the pictures weren’t of the products Garcia-Albarracin actually sent.
