ORLANDO, Fla. – Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested four suspects and issued an arrest warrant for another.  The suspects are accused of defrauding the Xerox Corporation out of an estimated net loss of $7.2 million. 
 
Xerox requested authorities look into the activities of authorized reseller, RBM Imaging and its owner, Robert Lee Fisher, 75.  As an authorized reseller, he provided toner and other services to his customers based on copy machine service contracts.  Fisher was able to obtain toner at no cost as part of these service contracts.  Agents believe Fisher’s four associates who operated two shell companies, HDH Graphics Inc. and Aldar Securities,  provided false information to Xerox about the amount of toner they were using.  The investigation found the businesses existed for the purpose of ordering large amounts of toner and fraudulently reselling it. 
 
All suspects are charged with racketeering and three counts each of grand theft.  Fisher remains at large. The following four suspects turned themselves in on Nov. 9, 2015 and were remanded to the Volusia County Jail:
 
Bryan Arthur Day, 35, 4 Meadow Run Court, Ormond Beach, Fla.;
Jason David Haynes, 34, 821 Lindenwood Circle, Ormond Beach, Fla.;
Kyle Laing Haynes, 31, 105 Pennyroyal Lane, Deland, Fla.; and   
David Charles Haynes, 57, 5 Holly Ridge Trail, Ormond Beach, Fla.
 
The case will be prosecuted by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution.
