F.C. Grocery Store Owners Convicted of Insurance Fraud

Two owners of the Falls Church area international grocery store e Mart were convicted of insurance fraud last week by a federal jury. Suzanne DeLyon, 65, of McLean and Byoung Kyung Kim, 53, of Centreville were convicted on one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and six counts of wire fraud. DeLyon and Kim face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison when they are sentenced in October. DeLyon and Kim were indicted on Jan. 30 by a federal grand jury. According to court records and evidence at trial, DeLyon and Kim were partners in the international grocery in Yorktown Shopping Center that was destroyed by a fire in January 2009. In the course of claiming insurance reimbursements from Travelers Insurance, DeLyon and Kim conspired to falsify payroll documents and records, and they made false representations to Travelers to get over $100,000 more than what they were legally owed.
