Local restaurant owner files false tax returns

July 12, 2007

AUGUSTA, Ga.---A local restaurant owner is going to prison. Emilio Sanchez, owner of Vera Cruz on Stevens Creek Road, will serve 18 months in federal prison for filing false tax returns. He must also pay a $10,000 fine.

Sanchez's home was burglarized back in 2004. A safe was taken with lots of money in it. It turns out Sanchez under-reported his income for three years by almost $500,000.
