Executives Charged in Miami Airport Fuel Scheme

Cliff Berry II, president of Cliff Berry Inc., was arrested Friday and charged with racketeering, conspiracy, organized fraud, grand theft and tampering with evidence.

Larry Doyle, vice president of the family-owned company, said on Monday that he's confident the business will be cleared.

''These charges are without merit, and we look forward to go to court and prove our innocence,'' he said. ``It's been frustrating for us because it's been 18 months and we haven't had a chance to do that yet.''

Berry posted a $45,000 bond and was released from jail Friday.
