Feds In W. Mich. Say They Collected More Than $5M

Posted: Updated:

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - Federal prosecutors in western Michigan say they collected more than $5 million in criminal and civil cases in the budget year that ended last fall, about 40 percent of that amount in two cases alone.

The government collected more than $1 million from a physical therapist, Babubhai Rathod, in a case of health care fraud. In another case, Elaine Dawson paid nearly $1 million after evading taxes. Agents say she failed to report the actual number of people who bought tickets, popcorn and other items and skimmed the cash for personal use. The theaters are in Bellaire, Petoskey, Gaylord, Mackinaw City and Cheboygan.

In Grand Rapids, U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles says a majority of the money collected by his office came from criminal cases.
