Placerville Man, Arizona Accomplice Indicted on Embezzling of Organic Food Company

February 15, 2017 |  

A Placerville man and an accomplice were indicted earlier this month on charges that they conspired to embezzle money from an organic food company.  

A federal grand jury returned a six-count indictment today against Jeffrey Scott Davis, 59, of Placerville, and Glen Michael Martinka, 67, of Phoenix, Arizona, charging them with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and mail fraud.
According to the indictment, between December 2008 and April 2012, Davis and Martinka conspired to embezzle approximately $218,000 from the company by submitting false invoices. Davis was the national sales manager for the company and Martinka was an employee and part-owner of a vendor that marketed and sold the company’s products. 
Davis and Martinka had invoices made that charged the company for services that the vendor did not perform. Davis authorized the payment of the false invoices, and based on these false invoices, the company made checks payable to the vendor and mailed the checks to Martinka in Arizona. Martinka then split the fraudulently obtained money with Davis by mailing checks made payable to Davis.
This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Shelley D. Weger is prosecuting the case. If convicted, Davis and Martinka face a maximum statutory penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
