Black-market caviar scheme leads to Hinsdale man's indictment
HINSDALE — A Hinsdale man faces federal charges after he allegedly tried to sell caviar on the black market in Chicago.
Fedor Pakhnyuk, 39, faces two felony counts of violating the Lacey Act and is accused of attempting to set up a business to market processed paddlefish caviar in Chicago. He was charged in four separate indictments in the Western District of Missouri for acts that occurred in 2011 and 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice said Thursday.
According to the indictment, during that time, Pakhnyuk traveled from Illinois to Missouri to obtain paddlefish eggs. He allegedly purchased them, then processed the eggs into caviar and attempted to form an enterprise with others who would market the caviar in Chicago.
