Former Towing Firm Owners Arrested

Police say couple engaged in fraud

The former owners of a Mahopac firm called Top Notch Towing were arrested by New York State Police on May 21 and charged with fraud.

Frank Inzano, 47, and Shannon Inzano, 42, both of Carmel, were charged with four felonies: attempted criminal possession of a weapon, grand larceny, filing a false statement and tax fraud.

The state police, working with the state Department of Taxation, the Putnam County district attorney and the state Department of Transportation, investigated the couple following a complaint that they billed exorbitant charges. The police say the Inzanos stole more than $50,000 through fraudulent billing practices, possessed five illegal handguns, and committed tax fraud.

The Inzanos were arraigned before the Town of Carmel Court and released on their own recognizance to reappear on June 24.
