Arlington man pleads guilty to federal charges in grain elevator scheme


A northeast Iowa man has pleaded guilty to two fraudulent schemes in a Cedar Rapids federal courtroom.

Michael Recker, 47, of Arlington, admitted last week to bribing elevator workers to create false tickets. The elevator paid him more than $20,000 based on the false tickets.

Recker also admitted to selling a combine at auction for about $50,000 before filing for bankruptcy. Recker admitted that he didn't disclose that money to the bankruptcy court.

No sentencing date has been scheduled.
