‘Doc’ Antle, Employee Charged in Federal Money Laundering Crime
Myrtle Beach Safari owner ‘Doc’ Antle has been officially charged with money laundering. Antle and an employee identified as Andrew Sawyer have been charged in a federal complaint involving more than $500,000. The complaint alleges that over the last four months, Antle and Sawyer laundered cash for an operation to smuggle illegal immigrants across the Mexican border into the United States. Authorities say both men provided checks that were for false claims of construction work being done at Myrtle Beach Safari, which allowed the recipients to appear to have legitimate income. Antle and Sawyer received a 15% fee of any amount laundered. They along with another individual, William Dallis, were arrested on Friday by FBI agents in Myrtle Beach but, there are no charges listed for Dallis. Antle and Sawyer each face a maximum of 20 years behind bars.
