March 9, 2004

New York Superintendent Gregory Serio announced that the owner of Village Pizza & Burger, located at 156 North Main Street in Spring Valley, has been arrested and charged with insurance fraud, falsifying business records, and submitting fraudulent workers’ compensation documents. Yuri Milshtein, a resident of New City, was arrested at the Clarkstown Police Department and his business has been closed.

It is alleged that Milshtein submitted false workers’ comp documents stating that he was a sole proprietor and had no employees. An investigation revealed that he did indeed employ two workers and that the fraudulent documents were an attempt to avoid paying into the workers’ comp system.

He also reportedly submitted fraudulent insurance documents and falsified business records to substantiate this scheme, and faces charges on these accounts as well.
