Dix Hills Man Indicted on Wire, Fraud Charges
A Dix Hill man was arraigned in federal court Tuesday morning, on wire and mail fraud charges in connection to a Ponzi scheme totaling more than $5 million after he told investors they would be financing wholesale cigarette purchases on behalf of a Shinnecock Nation tobacco shop.
A 14-count indictment against Robert Rocco, 48, was unsealed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York in Central Islip.
Rocco was the president of the Dix Hills Soccer Club when he solicited club members and volunteers, as well as his friends and neighbors, to invest in businesses he created, claiming they would earn high rates of return on investments, according to a statement from United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Loretta E. Lynch.
