SCRANTON—Dr. Leroy Pelicci owns and runs Pelicci Pain Relief Center in Scranton.
His wife, Ann Pelicci, is listed as an employee.
The two now face charges including conspiracy.
Federal investigators sai the couple withdrew more than 430 thousand dollars from 4 Scranton area banks, all to avoid reporting that money to the federal government.
It is a crime called ‘structuring.’
“It doesn’t surprise me there are so many terrible things that go on and people cheat the government all the time. I mean they literally get away with it,” said Harold Strickland of Old Forge.
Newswatch 16 called the Pelicci Pain Relief Center.
We were told Dr. Pelicci was not available for comment.
