The California Department of Justice has arrested 11 people in connection with two recycling fraud investigations, involving Reno-to-Sacramento area routes. They claim that each case involved the collection, illegal transport, and fraudulent redemption of out-of-state used beverage containers through the California Redemption Value program.
During the course of two investigations, agents observed multiple loads of used beverage containers being loaded into rented moving trucks in Reno. The suspects took the material across state lines using routes designed to avoid required stops at the checkpoint in Truckee.
In June, CalRecycle says search warrants were served at two Sacramento locations, and at one location in Carson City. The suspects face charges of conspiracy, felony recycling fraud and grand theft auto.
Meanwhile, as the State protects its citizens from recycling fraud, Progressive elites in Sacrament are moving ahead with a plan to allow illegal aliens to obtain Obamacare.
