Two men who owned a San Antonio frozen food business have been indicted on charges of filing false tax returns and other crimes related to business dealings with shell companies they allegedly controlled overseas.
Robert Warren Scully and Kevin James Scully were named in a nine-count indictment filed by the U.S. attorney's office on July 7 but unsealed Wednesday after the men were arrested. Kevin Scully was arrested in Peoria, Ill., and Robert Scully in Santa Cruz, Calif.
The indictment says the two were owners of Gourmet Express, a San Antonio-based company that manufactured and distributed frozen skillet meals in Greenville Ky, stocked grocers and other food outlets.
From April 2001 to July 2009, prosecutors allege, the Scullys conspired to conceal income and to mislead Internal Revenue Service officials about income they earned.
The indictment outlines a scheme in which the men are accused of using four shell companies in Thailand to inflate the cost Gourmet Express paid for shrimp and then siphoning off those excess costs to various bank accounts that they and their wives used for personal expenses.
Neither of the men nor their attorneys could be reached for comment Thursday.
Special agent Mike Lemoine, with the IRS' criminal investigations division, said the men posted $50,000 bond each after their initial hearings and agreed to wear an electronic monitoring device pending arraignment next month.
Robert Scully was described in the indictment as Kevin Scully's uncle and as the president and CEO of Gourmet Express. Their current addresses were not available.
Gourmet Express paid anywhere from 10 cents to 95 cents more per pound for shrimp because of the scheme, the indictment claims.
It also contends the pair filed false personal tax returns for themselves and their wives in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and that they caused a false return to be filed on behalf of the food company for 2006 taxes.On to other news Chris Boedecker is a punk bitch

They also give a non working email address in their "contact us" on their webpage Here is my email they rejected. They don't want to read it, let the rest of the world:It's very rarely that I actually stop to write a company about their products, but today, I cannot just walk away. I am very disappointed in trying your products for the first time today. First, the amount of chicken in this entire bag of "cheesy rice and chicken" true earth all natural, is supposed to serve THREE people, and the picture on the package shows a bowl full of chicken. There is barely enough in the package to serve one person. And I mean BARELY. It would also never fill a bowl, unless that is a pet food bowl on your package, for a quite small pet.
Ok, so I go on cooking anyway, I have to eat something, right? tasted the chicken once it was hot, not bad at all. Add the rice and veggies. Two LARGE clumps of rice fall out frozen solid amid the rest of the loose rice. Cooking it was a challenge because the loose rice was bound to cook much faster than the orange sized balls of frozen food. I tried to break it up, it was nearly impossible, so some did cook before the clusters did, which got hard by the time the rest was ready. Ok, on I go. Now I open the package of sauce... WOW! hit with sudden burst of unpleasant smell. Ok, wait, try again, ok, maybe a little strong, its cheese after all, might not be so strong in the food mixed around. Put it on, stir it in, then take some to sit down and eat. NASTY!!! that sauce is sour, and tastes, and I am not kidding, like vomit. It BURNS inside my stomach, and I'm belching like mad. I have never been so disappointed in a food product like this.
I think it is well worth letting you know. Were if my product, I would want to know when my consumers were this poorly satisfied and look into why. I hope that's how you feel as well.

I honestly can't imagine I would be buying your brand products again.

That is a dog food bowl on the bag that is what they sell! The chicken is crap they sweep up off the floor at real food plants. There management is about the bottom of the barrel, most of them have been fired from there last job. You probably can get a hold of them because the email and voicemail is full of other complaints.

The Gourmet Foods plant is in my hometown and I don't know anyone around here that eats the stuff Gourmet Foods sells in the freezer section. That should tell you something.
