Dim Crims: 'Blind' Man Caught Driving Speedboat

Posted on the 24 January 2014 by Hughvw
A “blind” Wisconsin man’s $175,000 Social Security disability fraud scheme ended when federal agents caught him driving a speedboat.
Lawrence Popp, 58, was sentenced to one year in prison for defrauding the Social Security Administration after pretending to be blind in order to get disability benefits.
Popp was found out after agents from the IRS and the SSA caught him driving a water-ski boat, a snowmobile, and driving a car to and from his benefits office, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.
