Ponzi scheme suspect flees into frigid California lake using underwater ‘sea scooter’


A Shasta County man, wanted for his role in an alleged $35 million Ponzi scheme, briefly evaded FBI agents trying to arrest him Monday morning by swimming into the cold water of California’s largest reservoir using an underwater “sea scooter,” federal prosecutors said.

There, he stayed in the water for nearly 30 minutes using the Yamaha 350Li submersible device before he eventually resurfaced and was taken away in handcuffs. Sea scooters are motorized devices that pull users underwater at speeds of about 4 mph.
