Chicago Man Accused of Embezzling $3 Million from American Airlines

The FBI announced earlier this month that Gary M. Aumann, a manager for American Airlines at O'Hare International Airport, was charged with embezzling more than $3 million from the airline to fund a lavish lifestyle that included the purchase of numerous vehicles, riverfront property in Missouri, a 35-foot yacht, and monthly payments to a dancer.

The scheme involved the diversion by Aumann of more than $3 million in "business" toward companies owned by co-defendant Donald Down even though Down's companies, A & D Supplies and Addison Business Supplies, did no work for American. The two simply split the proceeds, according to the charges.
