Wisconsin Jeweler Charged With Money Laundering

 Harry C. Glinberg, 39, owner of Harry C. Glinberg Jewelers, in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, was recently charged in a five-count indictment with conspiracy to commit money laundering, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s office.

The indictment alleges that Glinberg engaged in the money laundering to avoid reporting transactions involving the proceeds of drug trafficking.

The defendant was charged based upon a several-year investigation by the Internal Revenue
Service, Drug Enforcement Agency and the Milwaukee Police Department. Glinberg was initially charged in August, 2006, but the case was dismissed without prejudice upon motion of the government in November, 2006, due to the need for further investigation and anticipated additional charges.
