CHiPs Star Larry Wilcox Charged with Securities Fraud
Larry Wilcox, best known for his role as Officer Jon Baker on CHiPs, was charged Thursday with securities fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Prosecutors said the former TV star was part of an “illicit kickback scheme to manipulate the volume and price of microcap stocks and illegally generate stock sales.”
According to the complaint filed by the SEC, the 63-year-old actor created a phony company, the UC HUB Group, through which he received kickbacks from Anthony Mellone, the CEO of Tri-Star Holdings Inc.
The UC Hub Group’s website describes the company as focused on precious metals, gems and the oil and gas industry. It also says the group is focused to “increase the value for shareholders by doing the proper due diligence to prove economic validity for the acquisition of” various companies.- Source
