Man who impersonated federal agent sentenced for illegal financial transactions

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



A Kula man who for years paraded around Maui pretending to be and telling people, including his wife, that he was a U.S. Treasury Department special agent investigating terrorism is going to prison for 18 months.

A federal judge sentenced Abraham Kantzabedian, 54, today to the prison term for making thousands of dollars in cash deposits into his bank account in increments of less than $10,000 to evade reporting requirements.

U.S. District Senior Judge Helen Gillmor also fined Kantzabedian $10,000 and ordered him to forfeit to the government two sport utility vehicles he purchased with the money from his bank account. One of the SUVs, a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban, was accessorized to look like a law enforcement vehicle. The other SUV is a 2009 Porsche Cayenne Kantzabedian bought for his wife.
