        Construction Company Exec Arrested on Kickback Charges.

        Date:Dec 14,2012

        A Louisiana man who was the vice president of a construction company doing work in Afghanistan was arrested on allegations he took thousands of dollars in kickbacks from subcontractors.

        According to court documents cited in the statement, McCabe worked for a company that received subcontracts to do reconstruction work in Kandahar.

        He allegedly solicited and took cash payments and a wire transfer of about $53,000 to his wife’s bank account in mid-to-late 2009 in exchange for awarding subcontracts there, prosecutors said.

        In addition, in late 2009, McCabe allegedly took cash payments and arranged for a contractor’s consultant to wire $20,000 to his wife’s bank account for material that belonged to his company. He didn’t have the authority to sell the material for his benefit, prosecutors said.

        He used the kickbacks to pay for personal family expenses, prosecutors said.
