To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
This FOIA request is for any FBI investigation into the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation (Maryland) pertaining to, but not limited to a criminal complaint filed by Donald Stone concerning the alleged embezzlement of an estimated $30K by Charles Richard Longo Sr. (deceased 2011) and a Bruff J. Procter. (See PDF Attachment with red annotations by Donald Stone)
The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation (WCBI), was possibly a Maryland State Police joint task force with local law enforcement with an office possibly in Bishop, Maryland located in close proximity to Ocean City, Maryland and possibly under the control of Maryland States Attorney, Joel Todd in Snow Hill, Maryland.
On or about Oct. 15, 1993 Charles Richard Longo Sr. (Longo) , Bruff J. Procter, Gilbert Sapperstein (thru his proxy & son Mark Cary Sapperstein) and a Robert Warfield Sr. seized control of Donald Stone Industries Inc. DSII) and threatened to have the founder of DSII arrested on unspecified criminal charges. Shortly, thereafter Longo was made president of DSII and signer on DSII corporate checking account. On or about Oct.29, 1993 Longo is alleged to have had his co-conspirator,Bruff J. Procter make a DSII check out to a Longo shell company known as American Credit Company for $10K and then on Nov. 1, 1993 Longo made a DSII check #118 out for CASH for $20K & on the "For" line (lower left hand corner of check) wrote
"Charles R Longo" and signed the check as Charles R. Longo. (See Attached
PDF page 11)
The $30K that Longo & Procter allegedly embezzled from DSII was allegedly part of additional money Longo & Procter's co-conspirators invested into DSII after seizing control of DSII and threatening Stone.
Longo's co-conspirators,Robert Warfield Sr., Hal P. Glick, & a Bruce A. Moore are alleged to have invested (collectively) an estimated $52,500 into DSII after Oct. 15, 1993 (when they seized control of DSII and threatened Stone)and then made Longo President of DSII,signer and controller of the DSII checking account.
Oddly,there is no mention of Longo & Procter's co-conspirators, Robert Warfield Sr, Hal P. Glick, or Bruce A. Moore in the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation(WCBI)report, even though they were local Worcester County residents in close proximity to the WCBI.
Stone has been unable to locate the allegedly embezzled $10k or $20K checks on the ledger sheets that Longo allegedly gave to the Worcester County Bureau of Investigation.
It's possible that Stone (who lacks a college education) simply missed the $10K & $20K check entries on the ledger sheets and maybe the FBI could borrow some of those high ranking, Harvard educated lawyers over at DOJ, such as Rod Rosenstein and/or Rachel Brand who might be able to help the FBI locate the $10k and $20K checks with relative ease that Stone can't find.
Given the fact that Charles Richard Longo Sr. was alleged to be a DOJ target during this approx. time period based on the notes of the Sept. 1994 meeting between DOJ Maryland, Chief of White Collar Crime, Dale Kelberman, MD. Assistant Attorney, William F. Howard, U.S. DOJ Bankruptcy
Trustee lawyer, Lori Simpson, and MD. Dept. Higher Education Commission, investigator Mike Beck.
I agree to pay reasonable fees. The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
