Former Finance Director of Gulfstream Accused of Embezzlement After Previously Serving Time For Same Crime

Posted By Law Offices of Robert M. Bernstein || 19-Nov-2014

Marvin Caukin, 66, former director of finance for Gulfstream Aerospace, was arrested for embezzling $8.5 million from the company. Caukin stole $8.5 million from the aviation company from 2001 to 2013 with the help of his co-conspirators by submitting falsified invoices for services for false vendors. Federal investigators and the United States Postal Service were tipped off to the illegal activity when Gulfstream noticed financial anomalies and fired Caukin in 2013. Caukin used the embezzled funds to buy his $2 million Calabasas home, pay off the mortgage on his Toluca Lake house, pay off credit cards and purchase a Mercedes-Benz.

Caukin was convicted of embezzling from USA Petroleum in 1994 and sentenced to 33 months in Federal Prison. Four months after Caukin was released from Federal Prison for his 1994 conviction, Caukin lied on the job application for Gulfstream and was hired as director of finance. Caukin enlisted the help of his seven co-conspirators to create phony shell companies and embezzled $8.5 million from Gulfstream.
