A 45-year-old South Carolina man who is employed as a codes enforcement officer by the city of Greenville is facing conspiracy charges. Sometimes, financial difficulties can cause employees in trusted positions to commit white collar crimes that could have devastating consequences. This man is accused of forging special event permits in exchange for payments.
Reportedly, an investigation was initiated when the office of the sheriff was informed that a fundraiser was scheduled to be held at an event center on Cedar Lane Road. Knowing that permission for events at which alcohol is served had been denied previously, investigators proceeded to the venue. Upon arrival, the venue's owner presented investigators with a special event permit that was issued in the name of Fire Fighters United Inc.
