Tony Luke’s Founder and Son Plead Guilty in Tax Fraud Case

We’ll get it back to Philly sports momentarily, but first, the BIG story on Action News is Tony Luke’s and a guilty plea.

From the 6ABC website:

The founder of a Philadelphia cheesesteak restaurant and one of his sons have pleaded guilty in a federal tax fraud case alleging the hiding of nearly $8 million in sales over the course of a decade.

According to United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams, 83-year-old Anthony Lucidonio Sr. and 55-year-old Nicholas Lucidonio, two owners of the well-known cheesesteak and sandwich shop Tony Luke’s, pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to defraud the U.S. government.

Say it ain’t so!

First it was Manco and Manco, then Chickie’s and Pete’s, then Chaka Fattah, etc. I can’t remember all of the Philly-area businesses and politicians that committed some kind of financial fraud. But now we’ve got Tony Luke’s on the list? Outrageous!
