Greasing palms: Bushwick broker arrested for waste scam

A Bushwick real estate broker was arrested after using a fake license to collect and sell restaurant grease. Seon Intrator, a broker at Edelweiss Enterprise Property, allegedly bought used grease from restaurants in Williamsburg, Bushwick and Queens and scalped it to waste transfer stations at quadruple the price, authorities said.

The NYPD’s investigators charged Intrator Wednesday with criminal possession of a forged instrument, DNAinfo reported. Edelweiss, where Intrator had allegedly been struggling to make a living, did not respond to the website’s requests for comment.

“Brazen tactics like these show what the good actors are up against,” Shari Hyman, the commissioner of the Business Integrity Commission, told DNAinfo. [DNAinfo]Hiten Samtani
