Avon man charged with structuring
Larry T. Chuppa was charged today with one count of structuring cash deposits into a financial institution in order to evade bank reporting requirements, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
According to court records, Chuppa, 57, currently resides in Avon, Ohio.
Between December 2011 through March 2012, Chuppa made a series of cash deposits at Fifth Third Bank for the purpose of evading reporting requirements, according to the information.
An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
This case is being prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Perry D. Mastrocola, following an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation.
