DAYTONA BEACH — Owners of Haynes Brothers’ Furniture accused two years ago in a scheme officials said defrauded a copier company of more than $20 million, now face federal charges — even after a Florida prosecutor said they committed no crimes.
David Haynes and his sons Jason Haynes and Kyle Haynes were each charged with racketeering and grand theft in November 2015 by Florida’s statewide prosecutor. That prosecutor dropped all charges in October 2016.
Now, a special agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations has filed new federal charges accusing the men of conducting financial transactions affecting interstate and foreign commerce and using proceeds of an unlawful activity, namely mail fraud and wire fraud.
