Money forfeited by con-man George Wells turned over to charity

“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.

“This case was never about card games as much as it was about the defendant raising donations on behalf of a simple charity and then putting all the money into his pocket. We are proud to have helped the Sheriff’s team return these funds to their rightful owner – decent hardworking people at TPR,” — ASA Daniel White.
