El Paso Times: Former employee of El Paso Fuddruckers allegedly involved in embezzlement scheme; all three to be sold

EL PASO, Texas

The owners of El Paso's three Fuddruckers hamburger franchises restaurant allege a former employee was involved in an embezzlement scheme that led the restaurants fall, the Times reported in an article Sunday.

The Times reports in May 2012 the brothers who own the franchises filed a lawsuit in federal bankruptcy court alleging that Armando Armendariz, former director of operations for the three Fuddruckers, along with his wife, Yvette Armendariz, and his brother, Hector Armendariz, who also worked for the restaurants, "engaged in a broad based scheme to embezzle and steal from the restaurants."

The Armendarizes, in documents filed in bankruptcy court, denied all allegations made against them.

Two of the restaurants have closed and the third will likely close soon as they are all scheduled to be sold through a bankruptcy-court sanctioned auction this month.
