“This investigation is a perfect example of the effectiveness of partnerships. From the original complaints received from the community to intelligence gathered by patrol deputies and the guidance provided from the State’s Attorney’s Office in conjunction with a thorough and detailed investigation. It was a very good day for all of us to be able to expose Wells and his illegal scheme and give this money to the rightful owner. This should send a clear message to anyone who thinks they will use a charitable organization as a front for illegal activity,” — Captain Dan Alioto.
