A Florida couple have been accused of defrauding Swisher Sweets International for $4 million.
The couple, Gretchen and Richard Camp, pleaded not guilty to fraud and money laundering. Gretchen, an employee of Swisher Sweets, allegedly created and paid bogus invoices from a Macon, Georgia-based company called Lodge and Anchor, which is owned by a close friend of the suspects.
Her husband then used these funds to buy a farm in Georgia, as well as gold, silver, several cars, guns, and ammo. The two say that they did this to prepare for the “fall of the U.S. government.”
