Florida Man Caught Fleeing To Cuba On A Jet Ski

A man wanted for insurance claims fraud tried to flee to Cuba on a jet ski with food and water but was caught but authorities.

Ernesto Cruz Graveran,54, was caught by the US Coast Guard after his jet ski broke down in the Florida Keys.

The US Attorney’s Office said in a statement that the suspect’s jet ski was ‘outfitted with a special fuel cell to allow for long trips, and within the compartments of the jet ski, law enforcement discovered a trove of food and water bottles.’

The complaint also states he went on the run after he allegedly submitted more than $4 million in fraudulent health care claims to Medicare.

“Graveran was aboard the jet ski along with one other individual, who was known to law enforcement to be an alien smuggler. The jet ski was outfitted with a special fuel cell to allow for long trips, and within the compartments of the jet ski, law enforcement discovered a trove of food and water bottles.”

As reported by Metro UK, it was unclear how far he made it in the 90-mile trip to Cuba before he was caught. The suspect launched a medical equipment company to allegedly steal insurance funds from Medicare.

The Medicare fraud stems from the suspect uing his company, Xiko Enterprises, to recieve funds for medical equipment for approximately two months sfter claiming it was eligible for Medicare benefits.
