BOP Contractor Indicted and Arrested for Wire Fraud


On October 28, 2021, a BOP contractor was arrested following an Indictment charging him with 72 counts of wire fraud.  Jack Kidd was indicted in the Western District of Texas.  According to the Indictment, from on or about December 31, 2010, through on or about August 5, 2021, Kidd was the part owner of a company that provided natural gas service to two BOP facilities, one in Waymart, Pennsylvania, and one in Aliceville, Alabama.  According to the Indictment, Kidd knowingly devised a scheme to defraud both BOP institutions and obtain money and property from the BOP by means of materially false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, both by affirmative acts and by deceitful concealment of material facts and omissions.  Specifically, Kidd allegedly submitted invoices to the BOP that inflated the actual amount of natural gas his company delivered to the two institutions.  The investigation is being conducted by the OIG’s Fraud Detection Office with assistance from the OIG’s Dallas Field Office and El Paso Area Office; forensic assistance was provided by the OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office.
