First-delivered Hawker 4000 Seized by U.S. Government
The first Hawker 4000 to be delivered to a customer--cigarette wholesaler Gary Hall--was seized along with other assets in October by the U.S. government as part of a 43-count federal fraud indictment. According to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Kansas, Hall and seven of his business associates were involved in "a scheme to avoid paying taxes on cigarettes that cost the state of Oklahoma and Indian tribes $25 million in tax revenue."
