Former FBI Director Investigates Fisherman’s False Claims

A federal report was filed June 10 required a fisherman, Jarrod A. Burrle, to return over $50,000 in BP oil spill money. The report, filed by former FBI director Louis Freeh, who is in charge of investigating claims arising from the 2010 disaster.

“Freeh says the money was paid to Jarrod A. Burrle based on false claims, including the assertion that he landed over eight tons of seafood per month from a 16-foot aluminum boat without any deckhand assistance. Freeh also said Burrle vastly overstated the amount of seafood he caught for himself and family members. And, Freeh said Burrle alleged sales of blue crabs to non-existent businesses.”
