As a colleague, I’d like to know what she did wrong

Realtor arrested for trading in waste grease. I mean, what else do we realtors do?

Bushwick — A real estate broker was arrested Wednesday after using a phony license to collect and sell thousands of gallons of used restaurant grease, sources told DNAinfo New York.

Seon Intrator, 45, allegedly bought used grease from fast food restaurants in Williamsburg, Bushwick and Flushing, Queens, and then sold it to waste transfer stations for four times the price — while flashing a fake waste hauling license at the shopkeepers, authorities said.

Intrator was arrested Wednesday morning by the NYPD Organized Crime Investigations Division  and Business Integrity Commission investigators and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Sources told DNAinfo Intrator sold up to 1,000 gallons of grease each week from March until June.

She allegedly convinced the eateries to sell her their waste for just $1 a gallon, and then sold it for $3 or $4 per gallon to waste stations, which use the grease to make ethanol and other products. Intrator even bought a 14-foot box truck for $10,000 to haul about 250 gallons at a time, sources said.

“Brazen tactics like these show what the good actors are up against,” said Shari C. Hyman, the commissioner of the Business Integrity Commission. “We are happy to be partnering with legitimate industry business to keep their marketplace level and competitive.”

So she bought from willing sellers and sold to willing buyers – what’s the crime, other than screwing up the Business Integrity Commission’s [sic] scheme to fix prices among the lady’s competitors?

Bizarre waste of taxpayers’ money.

    Sadly I think the real story here is that the pencil pushers have become so overbearing and gone so overboard that one now needs a license to buy someone’s used lard.
    No wonder that they are working so furiously on trying to disarm us. I’m sure they must think of gun control as self preservation.

    “Good Actors” in the NYC waste management business? She must be talking about the cast of The Sopranos.

    Reminds me of the Seinfield episode where Kramer and Newman drive to Michigan to get 10 cents return on the 5
    cent deposit.

    I like the crap about “partnering” with “legitimate” industry. That’s our government “family” in action.

    Guess it proves true the old saw about how you can choose your friends but not your relations….

    “So she bought from willing sellers and sold to willing buyers – what’s the crime …” Sounds to me like your for the legalization of recreational drugs; I agree.

    This is exactly the kind of bullshit you can expect De Blasio to champion and expand under his office. The problem for CT, a sinking NYC is generally creates more bad than good for us in the suburbs.

    I don’t see how is that considered as crime 😦 they should go after some real criminals, like those on $Wallstreet$, those that make “GMF” – Genetically Modified Foods” and those who approved “GMF” to be sold to people like us!
