Earlier this week, we reported on a North Carolina paving contractor indicted by a grand jury on charges of government contract fraud.

According to the allegations, Monroe-based Boggs Paving used Styx Cuthbertson Trucking Company Inc., a certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, as a pass through to obtain 35 federally funded contracts worth $87.6 million.
Boggs has since released a statement, voicing the company’s “disappointment” in the allegations and saying that the company “has been cooperating fully with officials.”
The Boggs statement says the company will “vigorously contest” the charges.
“While this unfortunate situation is most troubling, we look forward to having our day in court and an opportunity to present our side of the story. We are confident a full and complete examination of the facts will clear Boggs Paving and all its employees,” the statement reads.
“For almost three decades our family business and its 400 employees have served communities across North and South Carolina. We are committed to continuing to work extremely hard to deliver the same outstanding service our clients have come to expect from the Boggs Group.”
