An Alaska dentist and his wife, Glenn and Saray Lockwood, have been charged with tax evasion, bankruptcy fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.
The couple is accused of evading 3.5 million dollars in federal income taxes starting in 2013.
To impede IRS collection efforts, the couple filed a false bankruptcy claim. They later formed an LLC and transferred the bulk of their assets into it, in the hopes of fooling the IRS and the bankruptcy court. During court hearings they denied they owned the LLC.
Glenn Lockwood previously served five years in prison for tax evasion and has been accused of deducting nearly all expenses as business expenses, including clothes, groceries, gas and a $1,504 charge to Mabel’s House of Prostitution in Nevada.
They each face up to 30 years in prison. However, while Glenn Lockwood is in prison awaiting trial, his wife has fled to her native Colombia.
