Cop guilty in towing kickback scheme


On the stand, Calixto admitted he was engaged in IRS tax fraud. And Colon, who worked under the table at M & W while collecting disability payments, lied to both a federal grand jury and federal agents, Cain said.

As FBI agents investigated, Colon took it upon herself to create a fake receipt for the $4,000 snow plow and concoct a story about Lopez paying Calixto for the plow but not recalling due to drunkenness. Lopez had no idea she was doing this, Cain said.

“At no point did she consult with Mr. Lopez,” Cain said. “At no point did Mr. Lopez encourage (Colon) to do this. At no point did he ask them to do this.”
