Breaking: Chris Campos’ wife and brother snagged in federal arrests in alleged car loan scheme
More than one member of Chris Campos’s family reportedly saw arrest as part of a federal investigation into bank and wire fraud based out of Manhattan’s US Attorney’s Office earlier this month.
The car scheme as outlined by the Southern District of New York’s US Attorney Preet Bharara and the FBI alleged the announced defendants took out loans under false pretenses purchasing more than 200 vehicles involving at least 20 straw buyers.
Carmelo Garcia, the former NJ Assemblyman who put Campos in as his Chief of Staff at a reported $40,000 per year has remained mum with media since the announcement of his close friend’s arrest earlier this month.
An earlier invitation to Garcia here for an interview has been met with silence. Other reports of pending interviews with the former controversial head of the Hoboken Housing Authority have similarly been stymied.
Perhaps Grafix Avenger isn’t so much the popular girl and the Feds like horses in Hoboken too.
(For those slow on the draw, this is some levity and humor on a serious ongoing story.)
