'FISH KING' HELD ON FRAUD COUNT

A Long Island man who called himself the "Fish King" has been indicted on charges of defrauding 52 fish suppliers of $3.5 million and driving at least one company into bankruptcy, the Suffolk district attorney announced Wednesday.

Marvin Grimaldi, 34, of West Islip was `charged in an 11-count indictment with scheme to defraud, grand larceny, and fraud in insolvency. He is accused of withholding his assets when he declared the bankruptcy of his company.

Grimaldi, the owner of North American Shellfish, was arrested Dec. 6 after Suffolk County authorities learned he had purchased airline tickets to South America.
