A Chillicothe woman has been linked to an alleged vehicle fraud conspiracy that federal authorities say resulted in about 800 automobiles being exported to other countries.
The St. Joseph News-Press reported that Patrice Robertson, identified as P.R. in court documents, has not been charged in the case, however, her connection is outlined in an indictment issued earlier this week. Two other individuals face 12 federal charges each in the case.
According to the newspaper, Ms. Robertson allegedly conspired with Steven J. Romshek, a former Omaha, NE car salesman, and Marilyn Maskill, to export cars to different countries through fraud. Both Romshek and Ms. Maskill have been charged with 11 counts of wire fraud and one count of conspiracy. FBI officials will not say if there are charges pending against Ms. Robertson.
The case has been under investigation by federal authorities since 2006.
Ms. Robertson and her husband, Ed Robertson, ran Robertson Land Corp., Robertson Motor Co. and Contact America, Inc. in Chillicothe.
The newspaper said that Ms. Robertson allegedly helped the two defendants buy and ship vehicles to areas such as Nigeria, the United Arab Emirates, China, Japan and Belgium. Working in succession, Romshek, who was a salesman at Huber Cadillac in Omaha, sold new vehicles, primarily Hummers, to Ms. Robertson, knowing she would export them to other countries, federal court documents stated. Following the sales, Ms. Maskill, who owned and operated Corporate Auto Moves Inc. in Overland Park, KS, would arrange the vehicles’ transportation to docks throughout the U.S. for shipment overseas. The documents said that the companies the Robertsons ran were licensed to sell only used vehicles and inside the United States.
In addition to the selling of new vehicles, the court documents say that Ms. Robertson and Romshek helped start another company, NTJ Enterprise, under Ms. Maskill’s name to continue selling vehicles.
Court dates have not been sent for the defendants in the case.
