Sacramento, CA - When investigators from the California Board of Equalization (BOE) asked special agents with the California Attorney General's Special Crime Unit to help out with a case involving tax fraud, they jumped in, investigated, and made the arrest.
Roseville accountant Larry Harmon, president of Larry Harmon & Associates is charged with 10 felony counts. He is accused of forging the signatures of bank officers on defaulted vehicle loans to get $4 million in tax refunds from BOE.
"This is an excellent example of BOE investigators and our special agents working together ," said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. "There's no toleration for those who forge signatures, and submit forged documents to make a buck. Four million bucks is big money."
Harmon was arrested Wednesday, January 9th and search warrants were served at his home in Granite Bay and his office in Roseville. Harmon has since been released on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned January 16.
