The tax fraud case against a prominent former Nebraska businessman has been dropped.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports prosecutors didn't have enough evidence to prove Mark Pieloch intended to evade sales tax on a sport utility vehicle he bought in Nebraska.
Pieloch had denied wrongdoing and said he paid the taxes in South Dakota.
So Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly decided he drop the charge accusing Pieloch of failing to pay $2,900 in taxes on a 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche he bought in Lincoln.
Pieloch is president of Pharma Chemie and he donated $1.5 million to the Capital Humane Society to help build the adoption center that's named in his honor.
Pieloch moved his business from Syracuse to Melbourne, Fla., in 2011.
