Associated Press Release

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say an Ohio man and a Florida man posed as high-level executives with a financial firm to improperly obtain charter jet flights and luxuries.

Forty-five-year-old Dante Dixon of Miami and 32-year-old Christopher Henderson of Akron were arrested Monday in Ohio by federal agents. Both face wire fraud charges.

Prosecutors say the pair made at least four flights between May and June through Jet Aviation, a business aviation provider based at Teterboro Airport. They paid for the flights by tapping into a sham $350,000 line of credit issued by the company.

A federal judge in Ohio ruled that both men should remain in custody until they can be extradited to New Jersey.

If convicted, Dixon and Henderson each face up to 20 years in prison.
