Utah Man Fined $63,892 for Fraud

Glenn Hafen, owner of Sunrise Transportation, was ordered by a U.S. District Court judge in Salt Lake City, UT, to pay $63,892 in restitution for defrauding the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), which receives federal aid from the FHWA. Hafen entered into vanpool agreements with UTA, certifying that the major use for the vans was to transport commuters. OIG investigation found that Hafen's reason for participating in the vanpool program was to obtain the vans and operate a for-profit airport shuttle service that transported paying customers from the Salt Lake City International Airport to Utah vacation resorts.
