RALEIGH – A Orange County business owner was arrested Friday on felony tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Arrest warrants allege that Sunde, a corporate officer of Central Carolina Pool, Inc., aided and abetted the corporation to embezzle, misapply and convert to its own use $68,256.85 in state and county sales tax during the period June 1, 2009 through January 22, 2013. During this period of time, Sunde held the position of President and was the responsible person of Central Carolina Pool, Inc., which was under a duty to collect, hold in trust, and remit North Carolina State Taxes to the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

The charges against Sunde resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Section in Raleigh.
